CAGS (Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study)



MCLA's Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS) in Educational Leadership is a post-master's level certificate for professionals interested in a career as principal, superintendent, or other leadership roles in education. The nine hours of CAGS credit can also be transferred into Texas AM’s doctoral programs in educational leadership.

This opportunity builds upon the coursework and experiences completed in the Leadership Academy. CAGS candidates will choose a topic to explore and then work collaboratively and independently with colleagues and professors.
