Due to the critical role the principal plays in campus effectiveness and student achievement, and consistent with the Texas Education Code (TEC), §21.046(c), the rules adopted by the State Board for Educator Certification ensure that each candidate for the Principal Certificate is of the highest caliber and possesses the knowledge and skills necessary for success (Title 19, TAC §241). The M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision program emphasizes the training and coursework necessary for obtaining the knowledge, skills, and attributes for becoming an educational leader.
The TExES Principal (068) certification is offered through the M.Ed. program. Students are expected to complete all pre-requisite courses and internship requirements for the degree and certification.
