  • Principal or School Administrator


W&J has a long and strong tradition of producing very successful teachers and school administrators. Most students who think they might enjoy school administration will choose to major in child development and education, which combines psychology and education courses that teaches you about the needs and cognitive abilities of students across a broad range of situations and academic disciplines.  In other words, it prepares you to work in education at all levels.
