Description

The graduate program in educational administration offers a Master of Science in Administration degree (M.S.A.) to students who successfully complete the 36-credit hour degree program designed to prepare them for administrative leadership positions in educational settings. This two-year cohort program meets one weekend a month for twenty months. The program consists of core requirements (30 credits) and a required 2-year internship and final project with an accompanying seminar (6 credits). Course syllabi and classroom activities reflect the curriculum guidelines of the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) and prepare students to take the School Leaders Licensure Assessment (SLLA) licensure exam, which is required of all new school principals in both the District of Columbia and Maryland.

The Educational Administration Program is nationally recognized by NCATE; it is state approved and fulfills the requirements for the Administrative Services Credential in the District of Columbia. The program reflects the contemporary emphasis on data driven decision making and focuses on skills in data analysis, strategic planning and collaborative problem solving.  Students learn to evaluate instruction and to develop strategies to assist teachers with instructional techniques that lead to improved levels of student achievement.
