Masters in Educational Administration

If you work within the field of education and want to increase your earning potential, the best way to accomplish this is to earn a Masters in Educational Administration. After years of experience as a teacher, you can advance in the field by earning your master’s degree. It is not necessary for every administrative position, but almost every public school requires the principal, assistant principal and district administrators to hold a master’s degree. Specific courses are school leadership, educational law, counseling, research design, school finance and budgeting, curriculum development and evaluation, and the politics in education. Before you can be accepted into the program, you will need a bachelor’s degree, and teaching experience.

If you have been a teacher for several years and think it is time you advanced to a higher position, now you can do exactly that. However, teachers have busy schedules, so you may wonder when you could ever attend class when you have classes to teach yourself. Night school is an option, but something that even more convenient is the option to earn your degree online from home. Internet programs in educational administration are highly available and less expensive than traditional school settings.

The number of educational administrator positions open in 2004, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, was about 442,000. Other information provided by the Bureau includes the fact that 60% of these positions were for local governments, including at colleges, schools and universities. The average annual income of educational administrators who complete Educational Administration Master’s Programs is just over $74,000. States in the South and Southwest are the places to look for promising job prospects in the category of educational administration, since many currently holding positions will be leaving the field for retirement soon.
