The Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) program is intended for professionals in public or private schools who are seeking instructional leadership roles or administrative positions at the district level. The Superintendent concentration meets the competency requirements of DESE for certification as a School Superintendent. Individuals serving in Assistant Superintendent or Superintendent positions at public PK-Grade 12 schools in the state of Missouri must be certified at the superintendent level.
The Curriculum and Instruction concentration is designed for master teachers or curriculum coordinators who wish to serve as exemplars of instructional strategies and learning processes.
Each Ed.S. degree candidate is required to develop a comprehensive plan of study indicating timelines, required courses, and research options with the Graduate Advisor. The worksheet for the plan of study is available in the Graduate Advisor’s office and must be completed and approved at the beginning of the student’s program. The plan of study should be reviewed periodically with a Graduate Advisor to ensure that the student is meeting desired academic goals.
