The Educational Specialist [Ed.S.] chooses a concentration in Educational Leadership or Curriculum & Instruction. The Ed.S. program prepares competent, effective leaders with a Christian world view who will model high standards and assume a leadership role in the field of education. Leaders in the field of education are seen as those who assume a facilitating role in accomplishing the goals and objectives of an education system whether it be as a teacher, superintendent, principal, curriculum director, instructional supervisor, or university administrator.


The Ed.S. is a thirty hour degree.  No residence is required for this non-licensure program.  Completion of residence courses is recommended for those planning to pursue completion of the Ed.D. after the Ed.S.
