About

The Master of Arts in Education - School Leadership offered by Furman University is for experienced teachers ready to expand their leadership opportunities outside of the traditional classroom.

Overview

The Education - School Leadership program offered by Furman University includes extensive preparation for school administration and a sequence of courses and

activities planned to guide the candidates in developing the knowledge and skills required of principals and supervisors. A year-long, 6-credit internship with monthly seminars provides candidates with opportunities to apply their knowledge and continue to improve their abilities to function as effective, caring school leaders.

Students seeking a Master of Arts in this concentration area must have a valid South Carolina teaching certificate (Professional Level, K-8 or 7-12) and a minimum of two years’ teaching experience, including at least one year at the level of the certificate for which the individual is applying. (Elementary grades: K-8; Secondary grades: 7-12). 

Students certified to teach at the elementary level should enroll in the elementary school leadership program, and students certified in a subject taught in high school should enroll in the secondary school leadership program. Persons wishing to become certified in administration at a level different from their teaching certification area will need to add the appropriate teaching credential and consult the graduate advisor for the course(s) needed in school leadership. Persons holding valid teaching credentials in both elementary and secondary may select either elementary or secondary school leadership.

To complete this program, students must show evidence of a passing score on the appropriate Praxis II exam.
