The M.A. and Preliminary Administrative Services Credential program allows students to complete their master’s degree and/or credential in 16 weekends (Friday evenings and all day Saturdays) and one summer session during an 11-month period. This rigorous, practical program is designed for those seeking leadership positions in K-12 schools, community colleges, universities, the military, government agencies, and educationally related organizations. Students are admitted once each year in the fall, and they progress through the program as a cohort. The program emphasizes applied theories of educational leadership, mastery of practical skills required for effective school administration and competence in research methods necessary for understanding and assessing learning organizations. While designed primarily for K-16 leaders, the program is beneficial for leaders from other fields. Individuals interested in leading nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply.
