Regional association conferences and workshops offered for credit by SUNY-Buffalo State through AASSA, AISA, CEESA, EARCOS, MAIS, NESA, and the Tri Association provide another opportunity to complete graduate coursework for the degree. Students are allowed to include up to six (6) of the required 30 graduate credit hours through conference and/or workshop courses. Courses offered through the Principals’ Training Center (PTC) and the Academy of International School Heads (AISH) also can be used as part of your degree program.
Numerous American/International schools host the same degree program on site throughout the school year over a two-three year period of time. Appropriate staff of the school determines a plan that best meets the needs of the host school educators. Courses offered through the Counselor Training Center (CTC) and Principals’ Training Center (PTC) can be used as part of the on site degree program.
The awarding of the Master of Science Degree does not provide Certification or Licensure although the courses offered are frequently applicable towards certification in most states. United States colleges/universities do not “grant” certification. Certification or Licensure is obtained through State Education Departments.
