Educational Administration and Leadership (MED)

Course Description

The Educational Administration and Leadership Program (EDAL) is a graduate program of interest to persons who seek to exercise leadership in a wide array of formal and informal educational settings. Graduates will be prepared to provide leadership as educators, administrators and facilitators of educational change within schools and communities.
As a community of scholars and practitioners, we come from different disciplinary traditions (philosophy, law, educational administration and management, organizational studies, sociology, policy studies, media studies, Indigenous education). We bring to the Program an engagement with education undertaken in national and cultural settings in different regions of the world (South East and Western Asia, North America and the Pacific). We believe that this diversity enriches our teaching and exposes students to both Canadian and international experiences and approaches in the field of educational leadership.

Faculty members take pride in fostering student intellectual growth and in promoting student welfare. We ask much of our students and give much in return. The Program has been operating for over 40 years and has over 800 graduates, many of whom occupy strategic educational roles in schools, school districts, non-governmental organizations and in other community settings. A focus on education and educational leadership rather than “training” gives our program a special character.
