Educational Leadership

Guide schools to great success in your new leading role.

Do people look to you for direction and advice? Are you a teacher who has longed to have more of an impact at your school? Have you been told you’re a natural born leader?  If so, you’re an ideal candidate for our graduate educational leadership program that prepares you to take a leadership role in pre-K–12 schools. You’ll learn how to develop curriculum, refine student support services, work with the board at the school district level, and interact with government representatives. Through a combination of insightful classroom instruction and a strongly emphasized fieldwork component, you’ll graduate from our program ready to work in a traditional schools or alternative settings.

Our students bond with one another, learn from one another, disagree with one another, and ultimately become a network of professionals that I know will exist beyond the world of Brooklyn College.
