Skills taught prepare students to assume leadership roles in instruction, management, supervision, school improvement and problem solving.
Webster University does not issue principal certification but provides the coursework leading to certification. Students seeking an out-of-state certificate must contact their state's Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for information on requirements for administrative certificates. Some states require students to complete the entire program at one university before issuing certification.
Students seeking certification must take the appropriate Praxis for their state. Missouri students will take the MOCA 78. All students will take the Missouri Performance Assessment. This assessment is embedded in coursework.
This program is designed to be completed in three semesters and one summer term.
