Prepare to Lead the Change in your school and beyond
In the Klingenstein Center's Full-Year Master's Degree Program, you'll engage in cohort learning with a small, diverse group of exceptional independent and international educators for an unparalleled experience. You'll learn in community as each member of the cohort brings their own unique experiences and perspectives to create rich discussion in the classroom and beyond.
You'll immerse yourself in meaningful learning with renowned faculty, as you examine the practice of leadership through an interdisciplinary approach that centers social-emotional learning, the science of learning, and diversity, equity, inclusion, social justice, and belonging.
You'll learn with expert instructors, taking a carefully-curated core curriculum that examines key aspects of leadership and of school operations. You'll also have the opportunity to choose elective courses from across Teachers College - learning from renowned professors such as Derald Wing Sue, Chris Emdin, Ansley Erickson, Ellie Drago-Severson, and Sonya Horsford - or from any graduate schools of Columbia University.
You'll engage in a transformational journey as you synthesize what you've learned in your courses, through interviews with school leaders, in conversations with your cohort and with alumni, and through ongoing guided reflection about your own leadership and philosophies. You'll capture this in your Capstone, a learning e-portfolio that is both a tangible artifact of your learning and a guide for your future practice.
You'll leave Teachers College, Columbia University in two semesters with far more than a degree. You'll have a firm foundation from which to realize your goals. You'll be connected to a worldwide network of Klingenstein Center alumni who are dedicated to making a positive impact on the world through education.
