Educational Administration

The M.Ed. in Educational Administration program is designed for students interested in careers as educational administrators, such as Principals, Superintendents or other professional administrative positions.

The M.Ed. in Educational Administration prepares the student to apply to the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) for certification as a principal. It is the responsibility of the student to apply for that certificate. As part of the *certification requirements, applicants must hold a Texas Teacher Certification, and two years’ teaching experience in an accredited public school is required prior to application. A copy of the public school teacher’s service record serves as documentation.

*Students may complete this degree without certification

All courses offered in the program are delivered through an online format for the convenience of the student.

Students who have received the Professional Certificate for Principals are eligible for the Superintendency Cohort program at ASU.
