Program at a glance: Building Principal M.S. in Educational Administration and Endorsement Programs

In the Department of Advanced Education Programs, you work closely with a faculty advisor to plan your program of study in the way that will most benefit you. This program offers a great amount of flexibility,with nearly two-thirds of the required classes offered in the spring and fall semesters. However, some of our classes can only be offered once a year. We provide this course rotation so you can see when the courses you need are offered, and ultimately so you can meet your graduation goals.

The Master's of Education in Educational Administration does not require a thesis. Instead, the program of study includes a required research methods course in which you will complete a major research paper, project or creative work. All graduate courses in a program for a Master's in Education degree must be completed within six calendar years. For course descriptions, see the University Catalog. Comprehensive Video-conference Exams and the Praxis 5411 Tests (www.ets.org) are required for program completion. For Kansas licensure, candidates must take the Praxis SLLA Exam #6011.

*Online: Courses will utilize video conferencing, which requires the use of a webcam. All EDL courses will be managed within personal learning environments employing the combination of several Google supported products aka GooPLEs. You will be required to use your FHSU student email account which is a Gmail. Below you will find quick directions on how to access your FHSU gmail. If either two methods don't work, please contact the help desk.
