Advanced Studies Certificate in Educational Leadership - Principalship

This certificate is offered in conjunction with the Educational Leadership - Principalship (MAE/ASC) program.

Students who have already earned a master's degree in education often choose to pursue the Advanced Studies Certificate (ASC) for the principalship program. The ASC leads to certification as a PreK-12 principal in Iowa and includes the same coursework and internship experiences as the MAE, with minor exceptions. Generally, students who have completed a master's in education have the opportunity to complete a student request to apply previously taken graduate-level courses in Educational Research and Foundations of Educational Psychology (though specific course titles vary).
