The Pennsylvania Principals Association and Lehigh University's College of Education are excited to announce a partnership that can help you earn graduate Certificate, Master's Degree programs, Principal and Superintendent of Schools Certification in Educational Leadership.
An Educational Leadership Certificate features 5 graduate courses designed to enhance your leadership skills in a K-12 school setting. The M.Ed. in Educational Leadership is a 10 course program that prepares graduates to be leaders in the elementary and secondary school environments. For those who wish to begin as a graduate Certificate student, all 5 courses will count towards the completion of a Master's Degree. Courses are offered in a hybrid format-online during the fall and spring semesters and in a condensed format on-campus during the annual Summer Institute held on Lehigh University's campus in Bethlehem, PA. Completing a Certificate program takes approximately one calendar year, with a M.Ed. program taking up to two years to complete. Students may also opt to pursue K-12 principal certification, director of curriculum and instruction certification and superintendent of schools certification.
Unbeknownst to many, the Lehigh University's College of Education's tuition rates are quite affordable compared to other similar graduate education programs in Pennsylvania. The cost of one credit hour is only $575.00.
