Education Specialist in Administration - Principalship Certification

EDSThis program is designed to prepare the student who has previously completed a master’s degree in an area other than administration to be recommended for certification for both building-level administration (principal and/or special education director) and district-level administration (superintendent and central office), provided all other requirements are met.

Students in this program who do NOT have Missouri principalship certification MAY meet those requirements by taking additional master’s-level courses in school-level administration and curriculum and by completing a separate field experience independent of the one required in the specialist program.
