2017-2018 Graduate Catalog


School Leadership-Principal Certification Only

Non-degree seeking students who already hold a master’s degree in an education-related field and who have credited at least two years of full-time teaching in an accredited school may opt for a program of coursework that will enable the student to meet requirements for certification as a school administrator (Principal) in the state of Texas. Students who hold a master’s degree from an accredited university in education or an education-related field may be admitted to the program for principal certification. The 21-hour program qualifies a student to take the TExES Principal exam, provided the student has completed all coursework successfully, has passed a practice certification exam, and met any other requirements as outlined by Texas law.
