Educational Specialist

The Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) in Educational Leadership K-12 is a post master's practitioner program. This is not an interim step between the master and doctoral degrees, but provides preparation for practitioners who wish to hold professional leadership positions such as a director of instruction, a special subject/area coordinator, or a director of staff development. Thirty (30) credit hours of planned graduate study beyond the master's degree is required to receive an Educational Specialist degree. The time limit for completion of the Educational Specialist Degree is 5 years.
