Educational Leadership License Completion

If you want to transition into an administration role, the Educational Leadership License program is right for you. The program is ideal, whether you already hold a Master’s degree or are looking to obtain one. You can choose from the following DPI licensing areas:

  • Director of Instruction  (DPI #10)
  • Director of Special Education and Pupil Services  (DPI #80)
  • Principalship  (DPI #51)

Licensure coursework meets the goals and standards of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction and can be completed in as few as 21 months. Students may also earn a Master of Arts in Education degree through the completion of three additional regularly offered courses.

Courses in the Educational Leadership program are offered in convenient 8-week sessions held in evenings during the school year. Summer school courses are also available.

You’ll work with experienced educational leaders who offer responsive and supportive advising and are dedicated to helping you meet your individual and professional goals. Advisors routinely stay in contact with students as they seek administrative positions. Program graduates have been hired as administrators in many area schools.

    My coursework at Edgewood College fully prepared me to lead a school. I have taken courses at other institutions and can honestly say that Edgewood College's program was extremely rigorous and very applicable to the education world. I worked the hardest I've ever worked and learned the most from my Edgewood College courses. The professors in the Educational Leadership classes really know the material they are teaching and really care about the students. I have made life long connections from my Edgewood classes and know that I have a vast network of resources that I can always turn to. I am very excited in my new role as a principal and can proudly say that I am an Edgewood College Alumni.
