Educational Leadership

Please note: This program is only available to individuals residing within the state of Alaska.

Beginning the summer of 2009, the University of Alaska Southeast and the School of Education began offering a one-year M.Ed. in Educational Leadership program. 

The M.Ed. in Educational Leadership program is a cohort program designed to prepare candidates to become school administrators in Alaska. 

This program will prepare candidates for the challenges and opportunities inherent in assuming roles as educational leaders in public schools.

We are now accepting applications for candidates in our next cohort. To be considered in the first round for the upcoming program, candidates must submit application materials by mid-January of each year. A secondary review of applications will be completed in an ongoing manner based on available space in the program. Cohorts start in July of each year and candidates should apply for the summer semester.

See the M.Ed. Educational Leadership brochure for additional information.
