Thesis-based MA in education administration

Broaden your understanding of contemporary theories and practices of leadership, education, learning and issues that affect schools and their communities.

We also offer a project-based Master's of Education (MEd) program. Both programs are intended for students who are currently working as teachers or administrators in the K-12 educational system. Candidates must choose their specific degree, MEd or MA, before entering the program.
