School Superintendent License

Ashland University's post-master's School Superintendent licensure program builds on course work completed through typical M.Ed. Educational Administration programs and administrative licensure programs. The program is designed to provide you with an understanding of the school district organization and the process needed to gather, analyze and use data for ethical relevant decision making. Opportunities will be available for you to learn current theories from professors, many of whom were practicing superintendents, to help frame and solve real life educational problems. A minimum of 60 hours is required for the license.
