If you hold a master's degree in education (not in educational leadership), this Education Specialist program is your next step toward a leadership role. Our curriculum is designed to lead to Commonwealth of Virginia licensure in Educational Administration and Supervision, PreK-12.**
Our program is cohort-based. All students begin with an administrative skills portfolio assessment. Your coursework will provide conceptual and theoretical knowledge. You will also complete field-based experiences to transform your knowledge into effective practice.
Themes in ODU's online educational leadership program include:
- Leadership for school improvement
- Data analysis and decision making
- Strategic human resource and fiscal management
- Establishing and leading professional collaborative communities
When you graduate, you will earn an Education Specialist degree with a concentration in Educational Leadership and emphasis in Administration and Leadership.
