About

The central objective of the Master of Education in Educational Administration Degree offered by University of Saskatchewan is to provide a problem- and inquiry-driven environment through enriched practical, research-based, and theoretical understandings of educational issues in the administration and leadership of organizations, communities, and government.

Overview

The department is actively involved in research relating to:

  • educational leadership
  • rural education
  • school effectiveness
  • leadership in post-secondary education

Course based M.Ed.

The course-based program offers students the opportunity to pursue depth of understanding in areas of personal concern where courses are scheduled to facilitate part-time study while students maintain their employment in schools. Recently, more than 100 students have been provided the opportunity to engage in graduate education in their own communities (including one First Nation), with their own school-division colleague cohorts, and tailored to the specific needs of their school communities.

Thesis based M.Ed. and Ph.D.

Research is central in this program. A culminating objective is for Thesis Program students to conduct and defend an original piece of research.Program objectives are achieved through accessibility to experiences that facilitate academic attainment within program coursework and the successful completion of a research project resulting in the production of a thesis. Required coursework for all students includes a mixture of theoretical and practical content. Furthermore, objectives are achieved through the following programmatic and extra-curricular opportunities: rigorous course work, research assistance in Tri-Agency and other funded research projects, experiential learning through laboratory and international study, conference participation, co-authorship and presentation, and seminar leadership.
