Master Education in Administration & Supervision with an Emphasis on Non-Public School Administration

You’ve looked at traditional principal certification programs, but your heart is in private or faith‑affiliated schools that don’t require a certificate, and frankly you need to know more about all those functions like HR, Finance, Public Relations, meeting the needs of special needs learners, and those responsibilities normally handled by the central office of an ISD.  If this is you, then this program is yours.  It’s focused on the needs of non-public school administrators, earns you your M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision, and helps you to better lead the non‑public school you currently serve or hope to serve someday.  Offered in face-to-face, hybrid, and online environments, you can be part of this exciting journey, apply now!

Participants in this program may transfer to the M.Ed. in Administration & Supervision with an emphasis on the Principalship IF they are able to meet the prerequisites for that program, including possession of valid Texas teaching certification, and a work record showing two years’ service teaching in an accredited school.

Official degree plan will need to be completed with your Faculty Advisor and Educator Preparation Office (EPO) staff. All required signatures must be recorded before it is official.

Participants who have started the program will be provided degree plans which take into account coursework successfully completed prior to the Fall 2019 semester.  Please contact your certification officer for further information and assistance.
