Educational Leadership Certificate Program Overview

Today’s educators are required to be mentors, guides and leaders within classrooms that are creative and comfortable learning spaces. Educational administrators must focus on hiring, developing and retaining the best educators for this new environment. Ongoing and updated professional development remains a critical success factor, not just for teachers, but for leaders as well.

An Educational Leadership Certificate from the School of Professional Studies empowers educators and administrators at all levels to embrace and capitalize on these educational trends. The program is designed to advance careers and increase earning potential.

Certificate in Educational Leadership Requirements

Our Certificate in Education Leadership program consists of six management-focused courses. If you think you have extensive professional experience in any of the required core courses, you may petition for Prior Learning Credit with the MPA program lead.

Prior Learning Credit

We recognize the valuable experience and perspectives working professionals bring to the classroom. If you are a student with three or more years in a professional position, you can work with your academic advisor to be considered for the Prior Learning Credit.  There is an administrative fee associated with the Prior Learning Credit.
