Launched in Fall 2010, The Advanced Teaching Track in Educational Leadership is a Master of Education degree for individuals who already possess teacher certification. In addition to core courses, these certified teachers will concentrate in principalship by electing 14 semester hours of coursework in Educational Leadership.
To be considered for unconditional admission to the advanced track, all applicants must have a minimum of a bachelor's degree with an undergraduate GPA of 3.00 (on a 4.00 scale) from an accredited institution of higher education. Applicants must also have official Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) scores forwarded to the Office of Graduate Admissions. The minimum acceptable overall total score on the verbal and quantitative sections of the GRE is 1000 to be considered for unconditional admission into this program. Moreover, a minimum score of 550 is required on the verbal section of the GRE for unconditional admission. If a student elects to take the MAT, the minimum acceptable total score is 400 for unconditional admission. However, any student who holds a master's degree or the equivalent may request to have the GRE or MAT requirement waivered. In addition, teachers must submit a copy of their teaching certificate and two letters of recommendation; one academic and one professional.
