The Educational Leadership Program offers two M.S. degree options; a 36-hour M.S. degree in Education (Option 1), and a 30-hour M.S. degree in Education (Option 2)

Option 1 – Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership with Licensure


Option 1 (36 hours) is designed to culminate in a master’s degree with a recommendation of endorsement for full preK-12 administration and supervision. This option is for students who DO NOT hold a prior master’s degree from an accredited program.

Option 2 - Master of Science Degree in Educational Leadership with Licensure


Option 2 (30 hours) is designed to culminate in a master’s degree with a recommendation of endorsement in PreK-12 administration and supervision. This option is for students who hold a prior master’s degree from an accredited program.

Field Experience and Licensure


In order to be fully licensed, a student must complete an internship. An internship consists of a total of 360 hours of administration experience in local schools and/or in a division office setting. Students may begin the field placement after six hours in the program at a time (in 2 hour increments). Each 2.0 hour unit of the internship consists of 120 clock hours working with a mentor principal/central office supervisor. The administrative internship is required for licensure as a preK-12 supervisor.

Licensure Requirements


The School Licensure Leadership Assessment (SLLA) by ETS is required by the Commonwealth of Virginia, prior to receiving the pre K-12 Administration and Supervision license. Radford University’s Master of Science in Educational Leadership provides students the opportunity to prepare for the role of school principal and/or central office supervisor licensure at the preK-12 level. All program requirements are to be completed before registering for the SLLA.
