Students in Instructional Leadership may participate in programs leading to a master’s degree (M.Ed.) with initial certification (Class A), a specialist degree (Ed.S.) and advanced certification (Class AA), or a reduced hour option for certification (Class A).
A reduced-hour option is available in Instructional Leadership. Those individuals who already hold a master’s degree (and a valid Alabama Class A certification in a teaching field or instructional support area) and meet the admission criteria for the M.Ed. program are eligible to pursue this option for Class A certification in instructional leadership.
