*This academic program satisfies the requirements for the educational administration licensure endorsement in Kansas, but does not fulfill the requirements needed to complete a master's degree. The educational administration licensure endorsement program meets the educational requirements for licensure in the state of Kansas. If you plan to obtain a license or certification in a state other than Kansas or a US territory after completion of your program, it is highly recommended you first seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency BEFORE beginning the academic program to ensure you can obtain a license of certification in your home state or territory. Resources for licensure and certification boards outside of Kansas can be found here.
