Students may complete the master's degree alone or in conjunction with the administrative services credential. The master's degree program may serve as preparation for the EdD program, but completion of this program is no guarantee of admission to the doctoral program at Mills.
A total of 10 Mills credits are required to earn the master of arts degree in educational leadership. Students select courses from among the Educational Leadership Program offerings listed below. The faculty advisor works with the student to develop the sequence of courses. Credits earned toward the preliminary administrative services credential may be applied to the MA, and MA course work may be applied toward the doctorate.
