You may not be aware that UMKC has a satellite facility in Kansas City Northland that offers five graduate-level degree programs in the field of education. Current programs include MA degrees in Counseling and Guidance, Curriculum and Instruction, and Educational Administration; an Ed.S. degree in Educational Administration; and an Ed.D. degree in Educational Administration.
UMKC Northland, administered through UMKC’s School of Education, has been offering graduate education classes in the Northland since 1998. In fall 2000, the school opened a facility inside Metro North Mall and then moved to its current location near the KCI airport inside the Platte County Resource Center building in the fall of 2004.
UMKC Northland’s 9,400-square-foot Center provides five classrooms with state-of-the-art Interactive Learning Environment (ILE) technology for enhanced instruction, a computer lab, and a conference room that doubles as a classroom.
Averaging about 230 students per semester, UMKC Northland offers high-quality instruction provided by a combination of School of Education faculty and adjunct faculty members. With its small student body, Northland provides its students a personalized educational experience.
The Northland campus employs a three-person staff to handle instructor and student needs with a main focus on making the student’s educational experience at UMKC as successful as possible. Debi Pfauth and Joyce Felts assist with student, instructor, and facility issues, and Dr. Rob Leachman, Program Director, advises students, develops study plans for students, and teaches courses.
