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.

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.

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.
