Graduates are eligible for New York State certification as a school building leader.

This master's program is built on the belief that:

  • School is the critical unit for the delivery of educational programs.
  • Schools of high quality are places where all children learn and grow in an atmosphere that is engaging, affirming, responsible, and just.
  • Effective school leaders work collaboratively and inclusively with teachers, parents, students, community members, public agencies, and businesses to create productive learning environments for all children and youth.
  • Public elementary and secondary education is an essential dimension of a democratic society and is entitled to serious, continuous, and meaningful support from its post-secondary partners.

Programme Structure

  • This degree combines content courses with fieldwork and electives. In your core seminars, you'll study educational leadership, organization and leadership theory, educational change, politics of multicultural school communities, and data-driven decision making and leadership. 
  • You can pursue additional study relevant to school improvement, teaching and learning, and community engagement and collaboration. 
  • Each course examines multiple theoretical perspectives, themes of equity and social justice, a focus on the needs and experiences of low-income urban children and youth, and implications for leadership within and outside of educational settings.
