INSTITUTE, WV – West Virginia State University will offer a new, fully accredited master of education degree in multicultural instructional leadership beginning with the spring 2014 semester.

The courses focus on action research methodology, technology integration and instructional leadership.

Admission requirements to the program are a bachelor's degree with an overall GPA of 2.75 and a score of 370 or higher on the Miller's Analogy Test; three years of public school experience; and successful completion of the application process.

The deadline to apply for admission for the spring semester is Nov. 15.
