The Arkansas Department of Higher Education has approved Henderson State University’s Educational Specialist degree in Principalship.
The new degree will allow individuals who have earned a masters degree in another area in education to earn an advanced degree that will prepare them to move into a leadership role as a building level administrator in a K-12 school setting.
Enrollment for this online course is available now, and designation as an Ed.S. candidate will likely begin this summer.
“The Educational Leadership program at Henderson State has a distinguished history of preparing high-quality school leaders,” said Dr. Celya Taylor, dean of Teacher’s College, Henderson. “The key to program success is the personal interaction with full-time faculty — experienced leaders who provide practical guidance in an online class setting.
“We are pleased that candidates will now have the opportunity to receive an advanced degree in this area of specialization.”
Candidates will have the opportunity to earn a 30-hour educational specialist degree rather than completing a 24-hour building level administrator licensure program of study.
