Minor in Educational Leadership

The graduate minor in Educational Leadership requires 12 semester credit hours. Students who wish to pursue educational leadership as a minor for another graduate program of study must have initial teacher certification and at least one year of teaching experience in K-12 schools. The minor develops expertise for teacher leadership. Students entering this minor must provide the following documentation to the Educational Leadership Graduate Advisor:

This minor does not provide principal certification. However, students who complete the minor may apply these courses in the future towards requirements for the post-master's principal certification program. Courses expire seven years after they have been completed. If you have questions about admission to the educational leadership program you may contact the coordinator of the educational leadership program.
