Graduate Education Programs and Certifications


Principal Licensure Program

In keeping with Asbury University's mission and its historic institutional commitment, the graduate program in education is designed to prepare educators for leadership and service in a variety of settings, seeking to meet all students' needs.

Teacher as Leader Endorsement

For more than a century, Asbury College offered a nationally recognized undergraduate program. Now, Asbury University continues to provide that same acknowledged quality of preparation through the Teacher as Leader Endorsement. This allows us to prepare educators to be facilitators of student success and communicators who can meet growing demands in the classroom, school or district.
