The Concurrent Master of Education – Preliminary Administrator Licensure is available specifically for students enrolled in our PreAL program who do not yet have a master’s degree.
Our master’s program features collaborative involvement between university faculty and the student, which fosters mentor relationships.
Why earn a Concurrent MEd – PreAL?
Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) requires administrator candidates to possess a master’s degree to obtain a Preliminary Administrator License.
As a PreAL student, if you do not have a master’s degree, we offer a two-year Concurrent MEd – PreAL 45-credit program.
In the first year of the program, students complete the PreAL requirements; all 26 PreAL credits apply toward the Concurrent MEd – PreAL degree.
During the second year, students complete their master’s degree classes.
