Master of Education Administrative Program for Principals: Curriculum

 

The 30-credit Master of Education degree includes all requirements for certification as a K-12 school principal. If you already have a master's degree, you may complete certification requirements through our K-12 principal certificate program [internal link to 8.3.12 K-12 Principal Certificate] without completing the entire master's program. Instead, you would only need 24 credits.

All students note: Completion of an approved certification program is a requirement for certification in Pennsylvania. In the certification process, the University informs the state that a student has completed the University's state-approved program. The state then reviews the student's credentials and determines eligibility for certification. We encourage all students to contact the Pennsylvania Department of Education before beginning Cal U's program for further information about certification requirements in Pennsylvania.

All students who will be seeking certification outside of Pennsylvania are responsible for securing and folliwing the certification requirements in the state in which they intend to apply for certification.

All students must apply for endorsement for certification through the program coordinator, Dr. Silvia Braidic , to initiate the process.
