University of Central Florida
College of Education and Human Performance
Two master’s degrees are offered in educational leadership: Master of Education (M.Ed.) and Master of Arts (M.A.). The M.Ed. is intended for those who wish to work in leadership positions and administrative careers in education. The M.A. is designed to prepare students for leadership positions in student personnel administration in higher education and education-related fields, and does not fulfill state certification requirements.
The program also offers Education Specialist (Ed.S.) and Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership degrees. The Ed.S. program is designed for those who are currently employed in or interested in decision-making positions in educational organizations. The Ed.D. program provides advanced graduate studies for students aspiring to leadership positions in education. The Ed.D. degree offers doctoral study in either K-12 or higher education administration.
International Student Requirements:
In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
