About the Program
If you are seeking a career as a school superintendent or school administrator, the education specialist (Ed.S.) degree in school administration at Wayne State can help you achieve this goal. Beyond the level of a master's degree, our 30-hour online education specialist program can give you the advanced degree you seek, but without the time and resources required to pursue a doctoral degree in education (Ed.D.). Those who complete the Ed.S. degree in school administration at Wayne State College may be certified to work as a school administrator at any level in a P-12 school system.
You must have a master's degree or endorsement in school administration from an accredited institution. If you hold a graduate degree in another field and have at least two years of teaching experience, you may begin the education specialist program while completing masters-level, school administration deficiency hours (usually 24 credit hours).
Upon degree completion, you should WSC Certification Officer, Phyllis Spethman, at 402-375-7373 to process the additional administrative endorsement level to your teaching certificate. The Nebraska Department of Education requires successful completion of the Praxis II School Superintendent Assessment. Our program of study is designed to prepare you for such a test, but your performance may depend on many issues beyond the control of our department, including prior educational knowledge, teaching and administrative experiences, test-taking skills, and your retention of course material.
