The specialization in Educational Administration is available for post-baccalaureate students who have an interest in administering programs in elementary or secondary public schools. Work toward the MA may be closely coordinated with requirements for the Preliminary Credential. The Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is the first of two credentials that must be obtained to be permanently credentialed as an Educational Administrator in California's elementary or secondary public schools. Individuals who have the Preliminary Credential may hold any administrative job in California for which they are otherwise qualified. The Preliminary Credential is in effect for five years from the date of issuance which corresponds with the date of employment in an administrative position requiring the credential. The Professional Administrative Services Credential Program authorizes service as a superintendent, associate superintendent, deputy superintendent, principal, assistant principal, supervisor consultant, coordinator, or in any equivalent or intermediate level administrative position.
