Graduate Admissions

A SADM Certificate focuses on preparing experienced teachers to serve as educational administrators through training in both leadership theory and practice. The program provides a foundation in principles and procedures of school administration, curriculum development and instructional improvement, while developing the ability to evaluate teachers, their instruction and educational research.

Courses are offered in face-to-face and online formats. In the classroom option, coursework is strengthened by supplemental online activities such as webinars, discussion threads, collaborative assignments and assessments. The online-only option includes web-based assignments, online discussions and group activities. While there are no face-to-face meetings, some activities include chats, discussion boards and web-based curriculum content.

You will complete the program with an online electronic portfolio, which meets a requirement for North Carolina licensure.
