About

The Educational Administration program at the Houston Baptist University prepares graduate students for positions as principals or assistant principals in elementary, middle or high schools, and for such district-wide administrative positions as program directorships and supervisor or coordinator positions. 

Overview

The Educational Administration program at the Houston Baptist University  is designed to enhance students’ abilities in planning, organizing, delegating, supervising, and leading through a variety of activities, procedures, and experiences, some of which are campus-based and some field-based. Students completing the program may also qualify for the Texas Standard Principal Certificate after passing the TExES exam.

Students in this program are well-prepared to be candidates for administrative positions. Students will regularly apply skills and knowledge gained in courses to their school setting, and will benefit from former and current educational administrators as professors and adjunct professors. Students also have the opportunity to conduct research independently and in conjunction with HBU faculty, to present papers at conferences, to publish, and to interact with practicing administrators representing a wide spectrum of approaches and philosophies.
