Recommended Course Sequence for MEd in Educational Administration

Degree and Certification plans are prepared in the EDAD 5300D   course. After the student has completed the four core courses, the student may apply for Internship (EDAD 5500D ). Once the student is enrolled in the internship, the faculty Internship Supervisor becomes the advisor for the remainder of the program. In preparing the degree plan, a student may transfer up to nine (9) semester hours of course work from another institution with advisor and UNT Graduate School permission. Students have six years to complete the degree. Work that is more than six years old at the time of your graduation cannot be counted toward the Master’s degree. Students must apply for graduation in the final semester of course work in order to receive the degree.  Students completing the entire sequence of course work will be eligible to take the TExES principal exam and be recommended for certification through the Texas Education Agency/State Board of Education Certification (SBEC).  The University of North Texas at Dallas is an approved principal certification program of the Texas Education Agency.
