Prepare for school leadership at all levels.

Educational administration blends leadership development with a deep understanding of schools. Through the online EDAD programs you will gain the credentials to become a principal, district superintendent, or other supervisor who values relationships and facilitates school improvement. 

EDAD students may pursue an online Masters or Specialist Degree as well as a non-degree endorsement.

“UNK has always been a place I can go back to as a resource and count on professors, count on other people that I went to class with. It just didn’t end in 2011 when I got my Ed. Specialist. It’s continued on.”
