UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Quality school administrators will help shape the future of education. Become a leader by enrolling in the Principal Licensure program at UW-River Falls. Graduates earn a Master of Science in Education in School Supervision and Instructional Leader. You may also elect to earn a Director of Instruction license with one additional class.
Students will complete 33 credits together in cohort fashion, finishing their degree in two years. Candidates who already hold a master's degree may complete 30 credits to be eligible for licensure in Wisconsin. In some cases, previously completed courses may count toward licensure requirements.
Students also have the option to take an additional three-credit course that is offered during the summer term. This course, in combination with the coursework required for the Principal Licensure degree, will qualify graduates to earn the Wisconsin Director of Instruction licensure. After completion of the required coursework, a portfolio providing evidence of the skills needed to meet Wisconsin Administrator standards is presented to a review panel of faculty and an area administrator.
