Master of Science in Education School Administration & Supervision

Program Description:

This Master of Science (MS) in Education concentration is designed for certified teachers and other certified personnel pursuing leadership positions in kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12) school settings and is approved by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) for certification in administration and supervision. Designed primarily for those pursuing principalship and supervisory positions, this 39-credit program is aligned with the nationally recognized Professional Standards for Educational Leaders (PSEL), as well as with the Maryland Instructional Leadership Framework outcomes. Program options are also appropriate for preparing department chairs, team leaders or curriculum coordinators. In addition to the standard School of Education admissions requirements, applicants are expected to:

  • Be certified teachers or other certified school personnel with at least 27 months of teaching experience,
  • Be currently employed by a public school district or an accredited independent school, and
  • Identify a person who will serve as a mentor (during the final internship course).  The mentor must have either Administrator I or II certification and be currently working in an administrative or supervisory capacity.  Additionally, the mentor should be willing to coach the intern and to meet on a regular basis to provide assistance to the intern in experiencing the many facets of leadership.

A strong emphasis is placed on the provision of opportunities for students to develop the skills and competencies necessary for successful educational leadership. Students have the opportunity to combine their practical experience with current research regarding best practices in areas such as leadership; curriculum and instruction; school law; and technology, among others. The seminar is a capstone class in which students synthesize prior learning, as well as explore some current issues. The internship provides an opportunity for students to create a portfolio based on hands-on experiences in a school. The one-semester internship is completed in the school where the students are assigned to work and is completed under the careful supervision of an in-school mentor and a university supervisor.
