About the Program

What is the Master of Education in Administration and Supervision?

The Master of Education in Administration and Supervision program is designed for educators who plan to become principals at the building level and supervisors at the building and district level. The degree program leads to advanced certification in the state of South Carolina. For students who already have a master’s degree, program completion will qualify them for Masters plus 30 status with South Carolina.

National Recognition by CAEP

The Education Leadership Constituent Council (ELCC) under the umbrella of CAEP (formerly NCATE) granted national recognition without conditions to Southern Wesleyan University’s MEDAS program.

What do students enrolled in the M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision program do?

As a M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision student, you will complete three practicum opportunities and an internship at their current school and gain a deeper understanding about topics which include educational leadership, school operations management, public and community relations, ethics and advanced educational research.

Is this degree right for you?

You might consider a M.Ed. in Administration and Supervision if you are currently a teacher with at least two years teaching experience, and you are comfortable with taking on leadership roles. Students successfully completing the program have the opportunity to become a school principal or a supervisor at the district level in South Carolina.

Southern Wesleyan does not advise students on what will or will not be accepted by their state departments of education. Students are encouraged to contact their state department of education to ensure the degree offered by Southern Wesleyan University meets state requirements. Additionally, Southern Wesleyan cannot determine credentials for individuals desiring to teach at the collegiate level as this varies by accreditor and is based on each individual's collegiate credit history.
