Welcome

The Department of Educational Leadership offers three degree programs and two licensure-only programs to prepare individuals for positions as educational leaders. The degree programs include the Master of School Administration (MSA); Educational Specialist (EdS); and Doctor of Education (EdD). The North Carolina licensure only programs include the Principal License and the Supervision License.

The Master of School Administration (MSA) degree is designed to prepare individuals to become school leaders. Program studies are aligned with the North Carolina School Executive (NCSE) standards and include strategic planning, problem solving, instructional leadership, managerial leadership, political analysis, organizational theory and development, and leadership skill application.

The Educational Specialist (EdS) degree in educational administration and supervision is a sixth-year post master's degree which requires a minimum of 38 semester hours and is designed to prepare individuals for senior level leadership positions in education. Program studies are adapted for the challenges of unique school district roles such as personnel administrator, curriculum supervisor, and directors of special program areas.

Upon completion of the program, individuals are eligible to upgrade previously held licenses. Individuals holding administration license (North Carolina principal license 012, class P) are eligible for administrator II license (North Carolina principal license 012, class AP) and superintendent license (North Carolina superintendent license 011, class AS). Individuals holding supervision license (North Carolina curriculum instructional specialist level 2 113, class S) are eligible for curriculum-instructional specialist II license (North Carolina curriculum instructional specialist 113, class AS).

This program is delivered completely online in a cohort model.

The Doctor in Education (EdD) degree in Educational Leadership is designed to prepare administrators for senior level leadership positions in public schools or in higher education. This advanced level of preparation fosters the development of skills and abilities for individuals to resolve educational issues and problems. Program studies include leadership theory, human resource development, organizational theory, policy analysis, planning studies, curriculum and instructional leadership, and political systems analysis.

Candidates seeking the EdD with a focus on public school administration must hold Level I licensure in administration or supervision. Upon completion of the program, individuals are eligible to upgrade previously held licenses.
