Successful completion of the program requires approximately 36 credits of study (including: knowledge and inquiry about educational leadership and administration; excellence in leadership practice; knowledge and awareness in multiculturalism, diversity, and inclusion; administering in multiple contexts and communities; and providing leadership and advocacy). This degree is one element in the requirements for a New Jersey principal’s certificate.
