Supervisory Certificate in:

Curriculum and Instruction

The Supervisory Certificate program is now a hiring requirement in many local school districts; specifically when a district seeks to add district coordinators, supervisors and department heads to its staff. The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction, one of KU's largest graduate programs in enrollment, is the degree that most closely aligns with the courses needed for the supervisory certificate. By carefully selecting courses, graduate students can earn both the M.Ed. and the Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction Certificate simultaneously.

The program integrates course-work with an internship in the school setting.
