Northwest Nazarene University’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Samuel Dunn is pleased to announce the offering of an Education Specialist (EdS) degree program with majors that lead to a superintendent or assistant superintendent endorsement, a director of special education and related services endorsement, or a building administrator endorsement. The new degree program was launched July 2009 and currently has 23 students in the various EdS majors.

The Education Specialist program emphasizes the administrator as an instructional leader as well as a servant leader, and stresses ethical decision-making, creative problem-solving, and professional growth. The program offers online, evening, and summer courses to allow working professionals to maintain their careers while furthering their education. Students can graduate in 22-26 months (depending on the major) and graduates have approximately fifty percent of the credentials needed for a doctoral degree.

Instructors for this program include NNU faculty and experienced practicing professionals. The program uses the cohort method, which fosters camaraderie and networking.
