The online Master of Arts in Educational Leadership program is not a state approved program for certification in Florida. The program is designed to prepare students for administrative and leadership positions in school settings and other education-related fields that specifically do NOT require certification (some examples include private school headmaster, community college of university staff administrator, or museum administrator). The Educational Leadership MA also offers two tracks focused on higher education: Higher Education/Student Personnel and Community College Education, both of which have different admission, enrollment, and graduation requirements.
The Higher Education/Community College Education track is designed for individuals whose goal is to teach at the community college level. The Higher Education/Student Personnel track is designed to prepare students for leadership positions in a variety of student personnel/affairs departments on college and university campuses and education-related fields. Note, these programs have different admission, enrollment, and graduation requirements.
