M.A. in Educational Administration

The specialization in educational administration is available for post-baccalaureate teachers or school counselors who have an interest in administering programs in elementary or secondary public schools. Most candidates for the Certificate of Eligibility (the first administrative credential) also take seven additional units in educational statistics and research design to earn the M.A. degree. Once earned, the Certificate of Eligibility lasts indefinitely until the candidate obtains an administrative position, and then is converted, without further coursework, to the Preliminary AdministrativeServices Credential, which lasts five years. Administrative credentials in California authorize service as a superintendent, associate superintendent, deputy superintendent, principal, assistant principal, curriculum coordinator, or in any equivalent or intermediate level administrative position.

The program application deadline date for the Fall 2018 semester is May 15th, 2018.
