The University of Wisconsin-Superior announced the addition of an education specialist in educational administration degree program to prepare postgraduate students for licensure in a broad range of administrative roles including superintendents and district administrators.

The program is designed in a flexible online format that supports the needs of working educators, with degree completion in as few as 18 months. The program includes 30 credit hours and accelerated 7-week courses and is being offered at an affordable price of $15,000.

"The program builds on UW-Superior's trusted reputation of providing flexible programs for administrators who wish to increase their competencies or satisfy certification requirements for present professional positions or positions with new and increased responsibilities," said Terri Kronzer, professor, Educational Leadership Department. "We are so pleased to add this highly accessible program to our portfolio of high-quality online degree offerings for working educators in Wisconsin."

Students can complete the education requirements for licensure as a school administrator, with a relevant curriculum focused on practical application and evolving trends. The program is designed for educators who already hold master's degrees in education and a principal's license. Program benefits include multiple start dates per year, faculty with extensive field experience, a focus on relevant, practical coursework and no GRE requirement for admission. All of the coursework is online.

Students in UWS' online programs benefit from a supportive, practitioner faculty, and instructional excellence in educator preparation as approved by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The university's experience in delivering high-quality online education has earned praise as the top online school in the state.
