We have reimagined the Educational Leadership program.
If you are a classroom teacher who wants to explore careers in leadership that will make a difference for teaching and learning, this program is the right one for you. Our Educational Leadership program offers both a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership and Administration, and an Educational Specialist degree in Educational Leadership. Both degrees are similar in content, designed to prepare teachers and principals to be leaders in 21st-century schools.
And our faculty members are more than mentors — they have real-world connections and industry knowledge they are willing and eager to share.
Developing Educational Leaders
The director of the program, a recent graduate and a current student share attributes that set the MA in Educational Leadership apart.
Faculty in both programs will work with you to design projects and explore research in a specific area of leadership of your own choosing.
“I am very happy I chose Webster because of the interactions and connections to other professionals in my cohort.”
