If you're passionate about education and driven to make a meaningful impact, becoming a school superintendent is the path to turn that passion into a powerful force for positive change. Through our Educational Administration and Leadership (EDAL) program you will be able to gain the necessary experience needed to successfully lead a district. The superintendent’s licensure may be attained in addition to, or independent of, the principal’s license.

If you already have a MN principal’s license, or are in the EDAL program to obtain your principal certificate, the superintendent’s certificate is earned with an additional 3-credit course and 6 credits of superintendent field experience.

If you do not have a principal’s license but would like to receive your superintendent certificate it entails completing the 36-credit Educational Administration and Leadership program with an emphasis in superintendent.

For more information on the curriculum please check out the course descriptions located in the  academic catalog.
