Fred Hampton PhD

Students desiring to pursue career goals in school administration (K-12) must complete the following in their Ph.D. program:

Coursework equivalent to the Cleveland State University Master's program in elementary or secondary administration or the equivalent (for example, administration certification -- see minimum prerequisites listed below)

The graduate core course requirements in the present CSU Master's in Administration program (social or philosophical foundations, psychological foundations, and research) can be satisfied by either previous coursework or successful completion of the Ph.D. core requirements. Completion of the minimum prerequisites may lead toward but does not necessarily result in completion of administration certification requirements.
