This 33-credit program is structured to address the educational needs of several types of graduate students who enter and proceed through the program. The integrated curriculum is designed to prepare individuals to assume an administrative role at a career and technical center (CTC) where they are responsible for long-range planning, promoting community involvement, providing for sound business and financial management, and providing facilities and state-of-the-art equipment.
Completion of this program will provide individuals with both Pennsylvania certification as a career and technical administrator and the master’s credential. It is offered in a blended format with most of the instruction completed online and utilizing video conferencing, allowing for flexibility for professionals seeking a master’s degree.
The program includes 500 hours of authentic simulation and field or internship experiences which are embedded throughout the program. This requires students to work closely with a CTC administrator to complete the experiences or course assignments in a real-life setting. This approach allows students to gain valuable field experience every step of the way, all while learning the related theory.
