Many states require Athletic Directors at a public school have a strong skill set in Athletics Administration and an Education Administrator Endorsement. The Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Education Administration with a concentration in Athletics Administration allows you to meet both of these demands by receiving an Education Administrator Endorsement while meeting the academic qualifications necessary to earn the Certified Athletic Administrator designation through the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association.
