Earn school principal certification through an in-person cohort model at EKU
EKU is excited to announce the return of in-person, face-to-face cohort instruction for our MAEd – School Leadership degree program. Earn your Master’s in five semesters, meeting for 3 days each semester. The meetings are held during the school day and if you are selected for the program, your district will provide release time and cover the cost of a substitute teacher. Join us for the next great innovation at Eastern KY University!
