Concentration: Special Education Leadership

M.S. in Educational Administration 

Now more than ever, classrooms need educational leaders who are prepared to lead and supervise programs for students with physical and mental disabilities, as well as those with learning and cultural issues.

Students in the M.S. in Educational Administration program may enroll in the Special Education Leadership concentration, which helps prepare leaders to supervise programs that meet the needs of students with disabilities in a variety of special education situations. This concentration is designed to produce leaders who are equipped with advanced skills, knowledge, and competencies they will need to collaboratively lead programs that meet the needs of students at risk for and with disabilities in multiple settings.

The 46-credit program fulfills the requirements for the Pennsylvania Department of Education approved certification and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership. Eligibility for the Pennsylvania Supervisor of Special Education certification requires verification that the student has completed five years of professional experience in special education or a related field.
