M.Ed. in Education Leadership, Administration & Supervision
Mission: The mission of University of Houston – Victoria Educational Administration program is to develop leaders who advance School-Community, Instructional and Administrative Leadership.
Students must pass a comprehensive examination on the content of three courses in their plan area. All questions will come from the faculty of the ELAS teaching core. Students are eligible to take the comprehensive exam upon completion of 24 graduate credit hours . Students who fail one part of the exam may re-take the exam within the same semester in which it was first attempted. Students who fail more than one part of the comprehensive examination must wait until the next semester before they may re-take the examination. A subsequent failure will result in required remedial work and may delay graduation. After three failures, students will be withdrawn from the program and, therefore, be deemed ineligible for graduation.
