What You Learn
The Educational Administration program prepares students for administration leadership in the educational arena. If your interest is in the principalship, Texas requires additional preparation for certification for Principal as an Instructional Leader; which this program includes. The principalship may be the most challenging role in education at this time. If your desire is to lead a school and have the capacity to meet this challenge, Concordia University Texas is here to support you in your growth and development as a campus leader.
Important Information Regarding Certification Option
TEA has introduced new instruments for principal certification to reflect the knowledge, skills and mindsets needed for beginning principals to be effective.
- New comprehensive test (268)
- Three performance assessments for school leaders (PASL)
The changes in the principal certification assessment process will be required for all principal certification candidates who will also complete a 16-week internship. CTX has aligned all principal preparation coursework to meet the demands of the new 268 exam and incorporated TEA recommended textbooks.
