Executive Superintendency Educational Specialist Degree Program (Ed.S.)

We are excited to announce a new Executive Superintendency Educational Specialist Degree Program (Ed.S). This 30/31-hour, fully online degree program is an exciting collaborative between three University of Missouri campuses (University of Missouri - Columbia, University of Missouri - Kansas City, and University of Missouri - Saint Louis).

The first cohort of this program is scheduled to begin summer 2021 semester. This cohort would then graduate four semesters later in summer 2022 semester. Space in this cohort is limited, so early application is encouraged. Students will enroll at one of the three campuses but will receive instruction and advisement from professors at each of the three universities. This is a first-of-its-kind collaborative program in the state of Missouri. 

If you are interested, we encourage you to respond to one of the individuals below for more information:
