M.A. in Education: Concentration in Educational Administration
M.A. in Education: Concentration in Special Interest
The department attracts students from a variety of backgrounds with diverse career goals. Through faculty advisement, a program is planned for each student to match prior training and experience, current intersts, and career aspirations. These programs can open the door to professional roles in public and private schools, government agencies, social agencies, and industry. Possible career opportunities include leadership positions in elementary and secondary schools and community colleges; staff training positions; adult education leadership or practitioner roles; and positions in research, measurement, and evaluation.
The department offers course work leading to a Master of Arts in Education in each of the following areas of concentration: (a) Adult Education, (b) Educational Administration, (c) Special Interest. The department also offers three credentials: (a) Preliminary Administrative Services; (b) Professional Administrative Services; (c) Designated Subject Credential in Adult Education.
The program in educational administration is staffed by an excellent faculty, all of whom have held leadership positions in school systems or private and governmental organizations. Most have been selected at some previous time for leadership positions in overseas educational projects. Each has developed an individual specialization, designed to implement the program of the department.
The program in educational administration has been designed to help candidates acquire knowledge and skills which are generally regarded as essential for effective performance in any entry-level supervisory or administrative position. The program is competency-based. This implies that as the candidate advances through the program, administrative skills and knowledge will be developed in planned increments with opportunities for practice and application of skills. Procedures in each course generally include several of the following responsibilities or activities: theory and practice under simulated conditions in the classroom; application and analysis of theory in a real situation, usually the candidate's school or district; and application and performance supervised by a school or district supervisor or administrator.
The Master of Arts is generally regarded as the professional degree for administrators. It is possible for the candidate to enroll in a program of studies leading to either a credential or a master's degree only or both.
