Graduate and Continuing Studies
Students accepted into the program will participate as a member of a cohort in a sequence of integrated courses designed to prepare them for school leadership roles. Interested students must be prepared to make a commitment to participate in the entire sequence of experiences to be eligible for graduation and provisional certification. If you have your Master's Degree and completed three years of successful full-time teaching or educational service experience, you will become fully certified as a supervisor if you take the following courses: EDAS603 Curriculum Theory & Practice, EDAS681 Supervision of Instruction, EDAS688 Leadership Development Institute, and EDAS612 Leadership for Curricular Change. Three of the courses are offered online for 7-week sessions or a full semester. EDAS 688 Leadership Development Institute is offered for one week at the college in July over a five-day session. You also have the option to complete the four courses in the traditional manner.
The College offers a reduced tuition rate for the off-site based cohorts. As long as a student completes the program within two years, the reduced rate will remain in effect. If a student takes more than two years to complete the program, the tuition will be subject to a rate increase.
Courses will be offered in selected school districts throughout central and northern New Jersey.
Upon successful completion of the program and a passing score on the SLLA Praxis, candidates will be eligible for a standard certificate as a supervisor and a certificate of eligibility as an assistant principal, director, and principal. Candidates for the principal's certification also must document at least three years of certificated teaching experience, as well as provide evidence that a fourth and fifth year will be completed during the course of studies.
The policy of the College is to accept up to nine (9) credits of equivalent course work toward the M.A. in Educational Leadership degree. The acceptance of credits from prior graduate work will be at the discretion of the Program Chair of Educational Leadership. Students wishing to have prior coursework evaluated must submit a request letter, the descriptions of the courses they would like to transfer, and an official transcript of their grade(s) in the course(s).
