Educational Leadership, M.S.

The M.S. program in Educational Leadership prepares international students for leadership roles in elementary and secondary schools around the world.

This program in the Department of Teaching and Leadership is open to international applicants who are looking to create and sustain school conducive to student learning through collaboration, trust, and a personalized learning environment. This program does not lead to any New York State certification, and is therefore not for students looking to be administrators in the United States; those students should consider the C.A.S. in Educational Leadership.
