Master's Degree Curriculum in Educational Administration Prepares Leaders

KU’s Master’s degree in Educational Administration offers you a graduate program that supports a rather wide range of career opportunities for leadership positions within a PK-12 school district at the building level.  You will first discover and identify your specific career goals and then consult with your faculty advisor to select your elective courses to compliment the required curriculum for all educational administration students.

The Master’s degree in Educational Administration consists of a 36-hour block of course work. The course sequence builds upon itself as you progresses through the program. You will also complete a comprehensive exam in the spring of the second year of the program that covers core coursework within the program.
