Curriculum

Students seeking to “add-on” the Certificate in School Administration to a previous master’s degree must complete 21 credit hours, of which a portion is a supervised year-long internship under the direction of a principal-mentor and a university supervisor.

The School Administration program encompasses a combination of courses in educational leadership, research, technology, curriculum, and instruction. All students must complete the required academic year-long internship under the direction of a principal-mentor and a University supervisor. The internship challenges students to demonstrate a thorough and well-integrated understanding of the basic principles, research findings, and theories covered in their coursework and apply these to educational practice and leadership situations.
