We appreciate your interest in The College of Saint Rose Educational Leadership and Administration programs!  Our Educational Leadership programs have been successful for decades in preparing future school leaders.


The College of Saint Rose's Educational Leadership and Administration program combines school leadership theory with hands-on practice so our school leaders are fully prepared to meet the needs of educational institutions.  Our combination of full-time faculty supported by adjunct faculty based in the field, ensures a student’s preparation is relevant, practical, and replicates the demanding field of school leadership.

Key facts:

In most cases, students will be required to be matriculated into a program prior to being able to register for classes. Students are expected to work closely with the assigned College advisor to ensure that the program of study and experience are both appropriate and meaningful for meeting individuals’ personal and professional goals.

The Masters Degree in Education, with a concentration in Educational Leadership, provides students with the required Masters Degree to meet New York State administrative certifications, as well as prepares students not pursuing certification, with a broad perspective of school leadership and improving student outcomes. 

The program is a combination of 24 credit hour program in school leadership (SBL or SDBL) and 12 additional credits, six credits in educational research tools and six credits in electives meeting student interest and linked to school leadership.  The 12 credits may be taken on-line depending upon course availability and student course requirements.


The College of Saint Rose is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
