About the School of Education

With the largest educational leadership preparation program enrollment at an independent college or university in North Carolina, the Gardner-Webb School of Education is focused on being a premier catalyst for positive, sustainable change. Nearly 800 students are enrolled in our undergraduate and graduate programs leading to credentials and licensure for educators that include birth to kindergarten, multiple teacher licensure areas, Master’s degrees in executive leadership, technology leadership, curriculum and instruction, and three distinct programs at the doctoral level. All of these programs are supported by 15 highly qualified, full-time faculty and a large cadre of adjunct faculty.

Undergraduate programs are delivered in both face-to-face and online programs at locations across the state. Masters and doctoral level programs are provided in blended learning and low-residency arrangements in a cohort format.

Program graduates are successfully serving as leaders in classrooms, schools and school districts across the state and southeast as teachers, principals, central office personnel and superintendents. Beyond K-12 schools, program graduates are engaged as leaders in higher education, community and non-profit organizations and other professions supporting education.
