Educational Leadership (M.Ed.)

Modified Program in Educational Leadership


Modified Program Leading to Educational Leadership Certification (no degree is conferred by FGCU) Students who already have a master’s degree may elect to take a modified program for Educational Leadership certification. This program does not lead to a master’s degree. The Modified Program in Educational Leadership is for students who have a Master’s degree in another field and wish to qualify for certification in Educational Leadership that is granted by the state. The state requires a program that meets the new state standards for Educational Leadership. The only required course will be EDA 6945 Internship in Educational Leadership (6 credit hours). The remaining credit hours in a student’s program will be individualized based on previous student coursework. These hours will be selected from those courses required in the M.Ed. program in Educational Leadership that will provide the student with the required state competencies. This program must be approved by the student’s advisor. Program completion also requires a final portfolio assessment based on the state standards in Educational Leadership and a passing grade on all portions of the Florida Educational Leadership Examination (FELE).
