Each of the three options for earning a master's degree in school leadership is deliberately designed to prepare educators with classroom experience to be thoughtful and effective schools leaders at independent and international schools. Based on your goals and your circumstances, you can select the program that best fits your needs. Alumni of all programs go on to rewarding careers as heads of schools, senior administrators, deans, division heads, department chairs, and teacher-leaders.
Both the Full-Year and Two-Summers Master's Programs have coursework in curriculum and cognitive development, education leadership, philosophy and ethics, research, law, marketing, and school finance. Each program also includes a practicum and a capstone project. The Full-Year Program allows you to be a full-time student with time to focus on a deep intellectual experience and to enjoy New York City. The Two-Summers Program allows you to maintain your current employment while pursuing your degree during intensive summer sessions and school-year projects. Each of the two options can be combined with an MBA through our dual-degree program.
