The Master of Education in Educational Administration program is designed to develop leadership for Manitoba’s school systems, and to provide students with an in-depth and theoretical understanding of educational administration as both a moral and a technical endeavour. Students in this program will benefit from their prior experiences as teachers or administrators in an educational organization.
In addition to courses during the regular academic session, the Master of Education in Educational Administration program frequently offers Summer Institutes in Educational Administration, which have included International Perspectives on School Improvement, School and Community, and Law and Ethics in Educational Administration.
The Department also publishes the refereed online journal The Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy.
As well, the Department offers an academic links program with the University of Nottingham, England, which is focused on teaching and research around school reform, school improvement and teacher education.
