School of Education and Leadership
Joanne Rossi, Ed.D
For almost 50 years, Notre Dame de Namur University has maintained a reputation for excellence in teacher education. The objective of the School of Education and Leadership is to prepare competent teachers, specialists, and administrators through professional programs that reflect current trends. Personalized attention and individualized counseling for students, field orientation of programs, and successful placement of credential graduates have characterized the program since its inception in 1953. All credential programs were reaccredited in 2010.
Master's courses are taught by faculty representing diverse academic and practical expertise. As a student in the master's program, you will experience personalized mentoring, which will ensure that the program supports you in your efforts to accomplish your personal and professional goals. Courses are available during both Summer sessions as well as the Fall and Spring semesters. Courses are offered late in the afternoons/evening and on weekends in order to accommodate work commitments.
In addition to the Liberal Studies day program, the School of Education and Leadership also offers an accelerated evening degree program in Liberal Studies, which is uniquely designed to accelerate the process for adult students.
