Educational Leadership

The Warner School’s master’s program in educational administration supports students’ passions to take initiative and develop skills to inspire and facilitate change in their country’s educational system. We prepare students to become skilled, knowledgeable, and creative leaders in elementary and secondary schools.
 
As advocates for thoughtful leadership, graduates understand how to motivate others, make decisions, manage people and processes, and enable individuals to reach their highest potential. They also bring reflective and conceptual thinking skills, as well as a broad array of leadership talents, to the challenge of improving schools.
 
Coursework in areas such as leadership, decision-making, program evaluation, grant writing, entrepreneurship, and management is central to the program. 

Students can complete the basic 36-credit program in one year (12 months), if studying full time, although many international students prefer to add an additional one or two semesters to take full advantage of field experiences and internship opportunities, and/or to pursue an Advanced Certificate in addition.
