The MSEd in Educational Administration is designed to meet the needs of students enrolled in the School District Business Leader (SDBL) concentration of the Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) in Educational Administration program who lack a master's degree, and is usually pursued concurrently.
This MSEd degree is not designed to meet any New York State academic requirements for teacher certification.
