Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Leadership and Supervision
The Certificate of Advanced Study in Educational Leadership and Supervision is a sequence option designed for candidates who aspire to obtain school leadership positions as a director, assistant principal, or principal.
Candidates have completed a master’s degree and hold New Jersey certification as a supervisor. A second course in supervision (EDAD-511) is required of candidates who have previously taken only one course in a state-approved supervisory certification sequence. An internship experience begins with and is documented from the first course. The approximately 60–70 hours of field-based experience under the supervision of a mentor translates leadership theory into practice. The complete internship experience begins and is documented from the first course, and the “capstone” internship experience (EDAD-591-592) concludes the program. Candidates will complete a year-long “Capstone School Improvement/Change Project.”
The frameworks for the program have been established to meet preparatory requirements as established in the New Jersey Administrative Code (6A:9-12.5) as well as the challenges, responsibilities, and opportunities inherent in educational leadership.
