Administrator (Licensure)

Young students on steps

An Administrator Licensure Program for District-Level Leadership

The Administrator Licensure is a post-master's program for P-12 educators who currently hold a principal license and would like to become district superintendents or hold other central office positions.

This program emphasizes planning strategic change at the district level, understanding how to effectively use limited resources, and working collaboratively with diverse interest groups. You will develop a breadth of understanding of leadership, policy development, local school governance, and contemporary educational issues.

Combine the Administrator Licensure with a Degree Program

Licensure coursework can be combined with additional coursework to earn an Educational Specialist (EdS) or Doctor of Education (EdD) degree. The appropriate licensure and degree options will depend on your educational background. Please check with the Program Coordinator if you are interested in a degree with this licensure.
