Accelerated License, Principal
Schools across Ohio are in need of highly trained and effective licensed school principals. At Ohio State, we have developed a program that will prepare school administrators to meet the challenges faced in their schools. Ohio State's Principal Licensure Program is a highly sought after program training the next generation of school principals. The program is ranked No. 9 in the nation among all educational administration preparation programs by U.S. News and World Report.
A 15-month cohort-based program, beginning during the summer and concluding during the following summer.
The 36-semester hour program allows you to earn your Master of Arts in Educational Studies. If you already possess a master’s degree, you can obtain licensure only.
Courses are scheduled so students come to campus no more than one night (day during the summer) a week.
The program is designed to allow you to continue to work/teach full time.
Students complete a yearlong field experience in school administration, completing activities to help develop skills to address real issues and responsibilities facing a building leader.
Coursework focuses on leadership, administrative development, school finance, and human relations.
