Educational Administration (M.S.A.)

 

Faculty

Description

The graduate program in educational administration offers a Master of Science in Administration (M.S.A.) degree to candidates who successfully complete a 36-credit-hour degree program. The program offers two options:

  1. Educational Administration – for those pursuing administrative positions in a broad range of educational settings
  2. Educational Administration with a Specialization in Early Childhood Education – for those wishing to pursue positions specifically in early childhood settings.

Both options can be completed in 5 semesters, during which students complete 30 credit hours of coursework and 6 credit hours of internships that culminate in a capstone project.

The educational administration program reflects the contemporary emphasis on promoting high student achievement through a collaborative culture and a focus on teaching and learning. Candidates learn to use assessments to facilitate continual school improvement through instructional planning and professional development for teachers around instructional strategies.

Course syllabi and classroom activities in the educational administration program reflect the curriculum guidelines of the Educational Leadership Constituent Council (E.L.C.C.). The program in early childhood education is guided by the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (N.A.E.Y.C.). Candidates in either track are prepared at the completion of the program to take the School Leadership Licensure Assessment (S.L.L.A.).

The programs are approved by the D.C. Office of the State Superintendent of Education (O.S.S.E), accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (N.C.A.T.E.), and fulfill the requirements for the Administrative Services Credential in the District of Columbia.
