Why pursue an Educational Leadership degree at The University of Texas at San Antonio?

  • We keep in mind that many of our graduate students work full time, therefore, all of our courses are after 5:00 PM during the Spring and Fall Semesters and are located at both the main and downtown campuses.
  • During their last semester in the program, our Educational Leadership students attend two free workshops to help them prepare for the TExES State Principal Exam and take a free practice TExES exam. These workshops are one of the reasons that our students have such a high passing rate for the state exam.
  • Our faculty has close connections and works closely with local school districts, superintendents and principals, and our graduates hold positions ranging from assistant principal to superintendent in greater Bexar County school districts.
