Am I required to hold teacher certification, and have teaching experience?
If you hold a Louisiana Type B or Level 2 teaching certificate, and have at least three years of teaching experience in your area of certification, then you may qualify for the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Educational Leadership program. There are two options to obtain certification as an educational leader. If you want to earn a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership, you should apply as a degree-seeking student. If you already have a Master’s Degree, you should apply as a non-degree seeking student to earn an add-on certificate. All candidates for certification or degree in Educational Leadership are required to earn a passing score (166 or higher) on the School Leader Licensure Assessment (SLLA).
