The M.S. degree in Educational Leadership is reserved for international students with teaching experience only.

Inherent in the design of the Master of Science in Educational Leadership program is a definition of educational leadership exercised by teachers and other school professionals as well as administrators-a definition that requires our graduate students to grapple with a variety of theoretical and policy perspectives, and challenges them to identify and address the tensions inherent in different ways of understanding the purposes and processes of education.

Major Requirements

Our program reflects these principles by requiring students to confront the demands of providing leadership for learning in both field and academic settings and by expecting them to integrate the insights afforded by each. We meet these objectives by cultivating closer connections between the university and the field, through active involvement of field leaders in the admissions, advising, instruction, and assessment processes, and through intensive involvement of students in a variety of forms of research, development, inquiry, and service in actual school settings.
