For superintendent and assistant superintendent candidates, the certification program in Education Administration provides advanced professional studies which enable them to increase their competence as educators and to develop leadership skills.

The superintendent’s certification program at Temple has the approval of the Pennsylvania Department of Education. When a student successfully completes all requirements for the program, he/she automatically meets the academic requirements of the state. The Department of Educational Leadership will endorse the successful candidate for certification; the Pennsylvania Department of Education will officially grant the certificate.

How to Apply

Applicants should apply to our EdD in Educational Leadership. After successfully completing the minimum requirements for Certification, students may choose to leave the program with certification-only or may elect to continue in the program and complete the additional credit hours and requirements to receive certification and the doctoral degree.
