The Program Course of Study for the Master of School Administration (MSA) degree is designed to prepare school leaders academically and professionally to advance the consciousness of social responsibility in a diverse and global society. Coursework emphasizes core functions of high achieving schools and the importance of deconstructing assumptions that are socio-culturally, ethically, economically and politically adverse to students. MSA candidates are able to reconstruct those assumptions into positive educational experiences and outcomes for students.
The MSA Program offers a variety of tracks to accommodate the diverse needs of all candidates:
- PRINCIPAL FELLOWS (Full-time-24 months)
- TRADITIONAL MSA / 1ST MASTER’S DEGREE (Full- or Part-time, 24-36 months)
- MSA 2ND DEGREE (Full- or Part-time, 18-24 months)
- Full-time MSA degree students are eligible for the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Stipend during the second year of the program.
