Educational Administration (Advanced Certification)
The Educational Administration track is designed for school personnel who already hold an initial administrator’s certificate. The coursework in this track is intended to lead to certification at the superintendent level in the state of Missouri. To be state certified at this level, students must pass the PRAXIS II School Superintendent’s Assessment (#1020). Coursework for this degree is aligned with the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium Standards for School Leaders. The Educational Administration track is designed to meet the competencies and specific course requirements established by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for certification for those positions but is also useful to those who work in private schools.
Lindenwood’s EdD program prepares you for the demands of high level leadership positions in school districts. Faculty in the EdD program have experience in education at the state level and as superintendents. Graduates of the EdD program hold many leadership positions in school districts across the state. Alumni currently work as superintendents, assistant superintendents of human resources, principals, and other central office personnel.For more information about the difference between the EdS and the EdD and certification requirements, please see the Educational Leadership programs at a glance document
