Program Overview

The Educational Leadership Graduate Certificate in Supervisor of Instruction program offered at Andrews University is designed to prepare students who have interest in administrative roles in a place of education. This program is able to be completed entirely online, a format of delivery that may prove to be beneficial to working educators that may struggle to balance and on-campus education with the constraints of a demanding professional schedule.

As this is a non-degree program, it requires fewer credits than a degree program and may strengthen the transcripts and resumes of those already holding an undergraduate or graduate degree in a related or unrelated field. This program can also serve to be beneficial to candidates that wish to complete some graduate level coursework before or instead of committing to a graduate degree program in the subject. The credits earned through this program can be applied to the Master of Arts in Educational Leadership program at Andrews. As Andrews is a Christian organization, the instruction of this program is grounded in a Christian worldview that promotes professional ethics and responsibility. The curriculum of this program is intended to help post-baccalaureate and post-master's students that wish to meet NAD Educational Administration Certificate requirements.

In order to complete this program, those enrolled must earn a minimum of 18-24 hours of credit from a few required courses. Of that total, five to seven hours come from work in School Administration, five to six from Curriculum coursework, and 4-15 from work in Supervision, depending on the past experience and qualifications of each particular student.

    School Overview

    From the very start, back in 1874, Andrews University has placed serious scholarship, quality research and a strong focus on practical Christianity first on the list of things they think are important about attendance at a Christian university. Mr. Goodloe Bell, a teacher, started a tiny school with only 12 students in Battle Creek, Michigan. This was the birth of what is now known as Andrews University, later named after John Nevins Andrews (1829–1883), the biggest thinker in the 19th-century Seventh-day Adventist Church. Today, Andrews is the best-known Adventist educational institution in the world.

    Andrews boasts about 130 academic options to choose from, quality professors who care about your success, and lots of resources to keep students on track. They provide hands-on learning experiences, opportunities to learn inside and outside the classroom, and personal attention from faculty as a result of our small class-size and low student-faculty ratio.

    The School of Distance Education extends access to Adventist education beyond campus, community and national boundaries. We support our faculty and students around the world by promoting best practices in distance education and international partnerships, and by creating a virtual community designed to nurture learning. The School of Distance Education serves Andrews University by providing leadership, faculty and student support, and professional resources in the following areas: educational technology, distance education, compliance and off-campus programs.
