Master's Degree and Endorsement Program
in Elementary (Grades K-6) or Secondary (Grades 7-12)
Admission to a master's degree and endorsement program in educational administration and supervision involves a review of the candidate's application by the department's admission committee. The review may require several weeks. Candidates should plan to have their application materials submitted well in advance of the semester in which they would like to begin their administrative studies.
Admission decisions are based on the candidate's demonstrated potential for successful graduate work, professional training, and success in the field. Submission of all required materials and documentation is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Candidates who already possess a master's degree from an accredited university may be admitted by the department as an educational administration unclassified student. These candidates will complete their endorsement program as described.
The specific application materials required by the Graduate College for admission to master's and endorsement programs include the following:
* Graduate College Application - https://ebruno.unomaha.edu/php/admissions/graduate/
* Two official transcripts for all previous college work, including the verification of a master's degree for either endorsement work, must be submitted.
Applicant must submit the following materials to the department:

A candidate must complete a minimum of 39 semester hours of course work, and a minimum of 27 semester hours of course work must be taken after admission to the program. The candidate must pass a written comprehensive examination at or near the end of the course work, and maintain a 3.0 grade point average in all course work taken in the program.
