Students pursuing a specialist degree in educational leadership have role specialty options to choose from, depending on their ultimate career goals:

  • General administration
  • Elementary, Secondary, or K-12 Principal
  • Special Education director
  • Superintendent

Students entering the specialist program are required to conduct a needs assessment of their current competence to determine a profile of their current knowledge, skill, and dispositions.  When this has been established, a plan of study is developed to fit the individual's needs and course requirements for the degree.  Modifications in course requirements may occur as a result of a student competence in a specific block area only with the approval of the student's adviser and the program coordinator.

Students who have completed prescribed specialist-level coursework as part of the master's degree are not required to repeat courses; however, they are required to complete the minimum number of credits and, therefore, may be required to complete additional elective courses.
