Master of Arts in Education-Educational Leadership
The Master of Arts in Education with a focus in Educational Leadership, offered by The University of Texas of the Permian Basin (UTPB), is designed to prepare candidates for positions of leadership in education. Advanced candidates participating in this program may become eligible for Principal Certification often required for positions in school administration. Candidates receive training in instructional and administrative leadership, cultural proficiency, conflict resolution, school law and ethics, fiscal responsibility, organizational theory and other relevant areas appropriate for twenty-first century educational leaders. Eligible candidates may also pursue Superintendent Certification through this program. The Educational Leadership program is aligned with the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) Principal and Superintendent Competencies, as well as the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)/Education Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) standards.
The UT Permian Basin School of Education certification programs are fully accredited by the State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC).
The UT Permian Basin School of Education proudly achieved full accreditation by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) in October, 2007.
All advanced candidates should consult with the program advisor to develop a degree and/or certification plan representing current SBEC competencies and ELCC standards. Substitutions of courses for the advanced candidate’s master's degree or Principal Certification plan must follow the proper procedures of a Petition to Graduate Studies, and are subject to approval of the candidate’s advisor and the appropriate Graduate Committee. Continued consultation and advisement with the Educational Leadership faculty will insure successful completion of the Master’s degree and Principal and Superintendent certification.
