Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Administration

Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Administration with a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential

Fresno State Paw Red

The K-12 Leadership and Administration program is an integrated degree and credential program for students pursuing a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Administration and a California Preliminary Administrative Services Credential. The integrated master’s degree and credential program is a 3 semester, 30 unit program of study. For students who have already earned a master’s degree and are pursuing the credential only option, the preparation program for a Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC) is a 3 semester, 22 unit program.

Graduates earning the Preliminary Administrative Services Credential are authorized to serve in administrative roles in California K-12 public schools such as principal, vice-principal, program director, and any related administrative assignment at all school levels. The K-12 pathway program is offered through a 3 semester, 18-month cohort delivery model with an intern option as part of the cohort model for eligible students. The intern option is for those candidates accepted into the PASC program with a contract from a school district to begin work as a school administrator. Cohorts are in partnership with school districts throughout the Central Valley.

Coursework and course-embedded fieldwork experiences in partnership school districts are based on standards adopted by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC): California Administrator Performance Expectations (CAPEs) and California Administrator Content Expectations (CACEs).
