Bloomsburg University's Supervisory Certification in Curriculum and Instruction program is designed to enhance the professional curricular and instructional competencies of individuals who work with children, youth, and adults. We pride ourselves with the ability to provide job embedded learning through various situations and settings. We also strive to constantly integrate present principals and administrators into our program to create meaningful learning experiences to our future school leaders. The supervisory certification program is endorsed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) and allows successful program completers the ability to hold an administrative position (other than building principal) in most all PA public institutions.

The program requires candidates to complete job-embedded field work and a district level internship learning experience under the mentorship of a seasoned district leader.
