The Educational Specialist (EDS) in Educational Leadership is a professional degree program for qualified candidates who do not have a specialist or doctoral degree and who are pursuing clear, renewable leadership certification in Georgia (Tier II). The “Certification Only” program is for candidates who already possess an EDS or EDD, but do not have leadership certification.
Unlike “traditional” programs, the majority of coursework in the accelerated performance-based leadership program occurs in the candidate’s school. In addition, each semester in the accelerated model consists of (2) 8-week periods and all educational leadership courses are eight weeks long. As such, to complete the program in the recommended time-frame, students are expected to take two classes during each 8-week period (i.e., 4 classes per academic semester). Using this model, students can complete the Ed.S. program of study in as few as 3 semesters and the Certification-Only program of study in as few as 2 semesters.
