Students can earn a Master of Education in addition to the K-12 Principal or the Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction Certificate.  Although students do not need to have a master’s degree to enter the certificate programs, they can enroll in the degree program at the same time. 

In addition to the 24 credits for the K-12 Principal or Supervisor of Curriculum and Instruction certificate programs, students are required to take 12 credits to receive a Master of Education. By drawing on the University of Pittsburgh’s vast resources, the Master of Education degree program in School Leadership will offer practical, real-world experiences to improve student learning and achievement based on cutting-edge research.
