Educational Administration (M.A.)
Educational administrators ensure that schools run smoothly and effectively for our students.
Steeped in a long tradition of promoting public education, Kean offers three master's degrees and five certificates in educational administration. Our programs prepare visionary school leaders to respond to shifts in the educational landscape while maintaining an accessible, personable environment.
Kean's curriculum strikes a balance between theory and practice that gives valuable training to aspiring principals, supervisors, school business administrators and staff. You will study public administration, school law and policy, among many other topics of interest on campus or online. Depending on the degree track, you will need to complete fieldwork, a residency, create an action research project/portfolio or pass state exams to graduate.
Kean graduates are at the forefront of progress and positive change in school districts across New Jersey and beyond.
"Kean University allowed me to find welcoming classmates who offered intriguing adult conversation that revolved around our major, engaged faculty members who were always a click away, literally, and technology that allowed for the smooth completion of online assignments both in and out of the classroom...a package that is priceless when you're a graduate student trying to juggle coursework and a full-time job."
At Kean, we believe learning and job growth extend far beyond the walls of our classrooms. That's why we encourage you to take advantage of a variety of research opportunities available to you, study abroad and pursue internships that will advance your career or set the stage for another advanced degree.
