The Department of Educational Studies now offers its principal licensure program at The Ohio State University at Newark. This program leads to licensure as a principal and also partially fulfills the requirements to earn a Master of Arts in Educational Studies specializing in Educational Administration.
“The goal of the Principal Licensure program is to prepare individuals for leadership roles in elementary and secondary schools and to meet licensure requirements for these positions,” said William L. MacDonald, Dean and Director of Ohio State Newark. “We believe that schools need to have well-prepared, effective leaders, and we are happy that we can contribute to the development of such leaders in our area,” he added.
The program’s practice-oriented curriculum is designed to prepare educators to meet today’s challenges of school leadership. Many courses are offered through hybrid course delivery, accommodating those individuals with schedule conflicts or residing a distance from campus.
Educators interested may attend Principal Licensure Information Sessions, Wednesday, September 18th at 5:00-6:30 pm and Thursday October 3rd at 5:00-6:30 pm in the Warner Center Library, Room 175 on the campus of Ohio State Newark. This is an opportunity to learn more about the program and begin the registration process.
