Online Educational Leadership Degrees

Leading the way: educational leadership programs

The high school principal has one. The assistant principal of the middle school has one. What is it? A big paycheck? While they might get that too, these educators probably share the same degree: a master's degree in educational leadership.

Educational leadership programs prepare graduates for administrative positions

Master's and doctoral degrees in educational leadership prepare educators for leadership positions in the field of education and academia. These careers are not limited to secondary education, as a doctoral degree in educational leadership can open many doors for positions in post-secondary education.

Leading education-related enterprises--whether it's a private middle school or a magnet high school--is a challenging and big job. Senior management in the field needs to balance the needs of thousands of stakeholders, including children, parents, staff and administrators. Master's degrees in educational leadership help the new generation of leaders in the educational field prepare for the challenge.

Undergraduate degrees in educational leadership are rarely available, but on the master's degree level, the opportunities are vast and varied. Colleges and universities around the nation, both public and private, offer on-campus and even some online or hybrid degrees to busy, working educators.

Some universities offer entire master's degrees in educational leadership online in order to accommodate educators' busy schedules. These online educational leadership degrees can typically be completed in two years. Doctoral degrees, which are offered mainly at on-campus universities, usually take two to four years of coursework. Classes traditionally include the following:

  • Computer Applications in School Administration
  • Fiscal Aspects of Education
  • Interpersonal Communications
  • Personnel Administration
  • School Law

Alternatively, there are non-degree leadership development programs for educators offered by private training institutions, as well as career schools and colleges. Classes include strategic planning, communications, managing change, coaching, etc.
