The Higher Education/College Teaching and Leadership track in the Educational Leadership MA program is designed for individuals planning to teach at that level and neither requires state teacher certification for admission nor prepares candidates for state teacher certification.

The program considers new applicants during fall and spring semesters only; passing a comprehensive exam at the end of the program is a graduation requirement.

The Higher Education/College Teaching and Leadership track in the Educational Leadership MA program is designed for individuals whose goal is to teach at the community college level. Every attempt is made to build the minimum required 18 hours of graduate-level content area courses into the program of study. Only six hours of independent study courses may be used to satisfy degree requirements. It is important to see an adviser if courses are difficult to schedule in the content area. Students electing this track will not meet state requirements for teacher certification in grades K-12. Successfully passing a comprehensive exam at the end of the program is a final graduation requirement.
