Degree Offered: MEd in educational administration

The Academic Program

The department offers graduate programs leading to the MEd in educational administration (EDEA) for both lower (K-12) and higher education and the PhD with a specialization in educational administration. The educational administration program includes both introductory courses and advanced seminars in the following areas of study:

1. Theory, policies and practices, and principles of educational administration;

2. Research;

3. Organizational theory and behavior;

4. Legal/financial factors; and

5. Educational leadership and management (e.g., program planning and management).

The educational administration program prepares educational administrators and supervisors for a broad range of education-related administrative positions. These positions include elementary and secondary school administrators, higher education staff positions, and department and grade-level chair at lower and higher education institutions.

Participants in the educational administration program will have the opportunity to study in a multicultural setting that includes students from the Pacific and Asia, as well as from private and public schools. The department's focus on both higher and lower education provides students the opportunity to explore a wide range of national and international issues of importance to education and to specialize in an area of interest.

Graduate Study

Master's Degree

Admission Requirements

Students seeking admission to the MEd in educational administration should meet the minimum Graduate Division requirements. In addition, students pursuing a specialization in K-12 administration must (a) present a minimum of 9 credit hours of undergraduate or graduate course work in professional education and (b) have a minimum of two years of teaching experience or appropriate job-related experience in educational organizations. Students specializing in higher education administration are exempt from the additional requirements. 

Major Requirements

Advancement to candidacy for the MEd in educational administration degree is based on the quality of the student's academic record after successful completion of a minimum of 9 credit hours of departmental course work.

The basic program of the department prepares educational administrators and supervisors for a broad range of education-related administrative positions. Students are encouraged to plan an individualized program of electives to prepare them for specific educational positions.

Candidates are encouraged, but not required, to include a planned field experience in their degree programs. Supervised administrative internships can be arranged for individuals in public and private schools and in other positions related to educational administration.

Plan A requires a minimum of 36 credit hours, 6 of which are earned through the master's thesis. Program requirements include EDEA 601 or 657; EDEA 602; one course in organizational theory; one course in leadership and management; one course in legal/financial aspects; one seminar in educational administration; and four elective courses, of which two may be from any related graduate field of study.

Selection of specific courses in the above areas will be made by the candidate with the advice and approval of the major adviser.

The department will accept a maximum of 9 transfer credit hours from an outside, accredited institution when such work is appropriate to degree requirements.

Doctoral Degree

The Doctor of Education (PhD) is a college-wide degree awarded for distinguished academic preparation for professional practice in the field of education.

The primary purpose of a PhD in educational administration is to provide highly qualified educational leaders in administration. The program includes course work developing knowledge and skills related to educational policy and governance, leadership in organizations, administrative theory and practice, and research.

The program includes courses required for all doctoral students enrolled in the College of Education; courses in educational administration leading to a specialization in either general education (K-12) or higher education; course work taken outside the field of educational administration; an internship within a school, school district, or post secondary or other educational institution; and the dissertation.
