Design Your Own Emphasis Area
Design your own emphasis area by selecting courses that of interest to YOU. That's 12 credits where you get to identify what you want to learn.
Select a topic and name for your emphasis area then choose courses to help you become an expert in that area. Select from Educational Leadership courses including independent study and internship, COEHS courses, UW Oshkosh courses, or transfer them in from other campuses across the country. You can take up to 9 credits from other universities. See the university policy below.

Transfer of Credits
Transfer credit is course credit earned at another institution that is accepted into your program here. Credit earned prior to program admission will be evaluated at the time of admission. Students who have been admitted to the graduate program and wish to take course work at another institution should enroll as a Guest Matriculate at that institution and secure prior approval from the Program Coordinator if you hope to apply these credits to your program. At the conclusion of the course you will need to have an official transcript sent to the Office of Graduate Studies.
Criteria for Accepting Graduate Credits
As per Office of Graduate Studies policy (see Graduate Bulletin ), up to nine credits may be transferred into the Master of Science Educational Leadership program. Credits earned prior to being accepted into the program will be evaluated when you apply. Decisions on those credits will then be indicated on your acceptance form.
Criteria for accepting credits include:
The course instructor is a regular graduate faculty member of an accredited institution, or the instructor has the qualifications comparable to regular graduate faculty and has the approval as an adjunct faculty member at the transfer institution.
The course is acceptable in a graduate degree program at the transfer institution.
The course syllabus is available with objectives, evaluation methods, and bibliography.
The course has formal meeting times and complies with the normal rule of no more than one course credit earned per week and 14 contact hours (60 minutes each) per semester credit.
The course is offered at a location close to a university (professional) library.
