Degree & Licensure
Take the next step!
Beginning July 1, COSA will have a new academic partner — the University of Oregon. Together, we offer a wide choice of administrative licenses and degrees. Our mission is to help you succeed, and we provide the tools and one-on-one support you need. Check out our curriculum below, and get in touch with us today.
Beginning July 1, COSA will be partnering with the University of Oregon to offer licensure and degree programs that support current and future administrators in Oregon. Our rigorous online program features Principal and Professional Administrator licensure, as well as the opportunity to pursue a master's, education specialist or doctorate degree. COSA’s mission is to develop and support school leaders — we strive to prepare administrators who have the knowledge, skills and dispositions to lead positive changes in schools so that all learners can be successful. The University of Oregon is recognized as a national leader in educational training. Together, we are committed to delivering a program with the highest and most rigorous standards of admission and completion.
The COSA-UO program is based on national standards that emphasize instructional leadership and cultural competence. Most coursework is offered online via a delivery system that fosters collaboration among cohort members and allows students to access material at any time. The COSA-UO program is designed so licensure candidates can also earn an advanced degree. The Oregon Principal candidate can earn a master's degree in Educational Leadership (M.Ed.) The candidate for the Oregon Professional Administrator License can receive an Education Specialist (Ed.S. — this program is coming soon), or a doctorate in Educational Leadership (D.Ed).
New schedule: Principal License cohorts now begin in summer term, rather than fall, in order to meet new TSPC requirements for licensure.

Staff at COSA are dedicated to helping candidates succeed by helping them with all aspects of the program. Cohorts meet to support one another at workshops, trainings and conferences throughout the year. We could tell you about all the great things the COSA-UO licensure program offers, but we want you to hear them from the people that matter — our candidates.
Our faculty are Oregon educators, too. There’s no ivory tower here — our faculty members are working professionals with years in the Oregon school system. They provide students with the real-world, relevant experience that makes for a truly great education. We carefully choose our faculty members based on their expertise in particular subjects and their practical experience in putting this knowledge to use in their own professional careers.
