Masters of School Administration

The Masters of School Administration is designed to prepare school leaders for the nation. Our program is a 42-credit, cohort-based degree program. It is administered as an Administrative Clinical Model. Under this model all students are considered full-time and are required to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and ability through year-long internship. The program cohort begins each fall and completes all requirements in two years.

Program Objectives

  • Prepare visionary school leaders for the restructuring of school and the development of shared accountability for teaching and learning.
  • Develop well-rounded school leaders as creative agents for change.
  • Develop ethnically sensitive and open-minded school leaders who have the knowledge and skills needed to respond to social, political and economic changes, and to quality, equity, and gender issues.
  • Recruit, select, and prepare school leaders, with special focus on women and minorities who demonstrate potential for outstanding educational leadership.
  • Provide school leaders with an opportunity to demonstrate knowledge, skills, and abilities through clinical experiences and a full-time year-long internship.
