School Administration and Supervision
As one of the top-ranked school of education in the country according to the U.S. News & World Report, the School of Education is concerned with aligning cutting-edge, evidence-based research with practical experience to arm new school leaders with the appropriate tools to transform their schools and sustain change.
In addition to the standard School of Education admissions requirements, applicants are expected to: 1) be certified teachers or other certified school personnel with at least 27 months of teaching experience, 2) be currently employed by a school district or an accredited independent school, 3) hold a master’s degree and 4) Identify a person who will serve as a mentor (during the final internship course). The mentor must have either Administrator I or II certification and be currently working in an administrative or supervisory capacity. Additionally, the mentor should be willing to coach the intern and to meet on a regular basis to provide assistance to the intern in experiencing the many facets of leadership.
