Welcome to the MSA Program

The Master's of School Administration (MSA) degree and add-on licensure programs prepare school personnel to become PreK-12 school principals. Program materials and experiences focus on school leadership, organizational theory, innovation, and best practices. Students work together to apply theories to real situations in schools.

Graduates of the MSA program will be effective educational leaders who can inspire, engage and lead others towards a common vision. The graduate program is aligned with National ISLLC Standards and the NC Standards for School Executives (NSSE). Students receive high quality learning experiences designed and delivered by expert faculty.

The MSA is offered fully online through interactive and engaging formats. From personalized feedback on discussion boards to interacting with professors and guest speakers via webinar, students can feel connected as they prepare to become school administrators.

For more information, please review the MSA Handbook. Please also feel free to contact us at
