Principals in the state of Ohio are required to hold a master's degree and an administrative license. They must also have three years of teaching experience, so a pathway to school administration would begin with obtaining a teaching license

There are also many other master's degree programs in education that can lead to a variety of professional pathways aside from teaching.
