Education Leadership, Management and Policy

Best Program BadgeSeton Hall University's Online M.A. or Ed.S. in Education Leadership, Management and Policy is a nationally recognized, CAEP accredited, two-year graduate program geared toward working professionals interested in becoming educational administrators such as principals or department supervisors.

Two residencies are required (Orientation and Mid-Residency). They are merely one day. This makes it easy for elementary, middle and high school teachers join the program and earn a master's in administration. Classes are taught by Seton Hall faculty and experienced education practitioners who bring years of knowledge and expertise in educational administration. Our next team will begin with a one-day (Saturday) orientation. 

Required Residencies in 2019-2020: 

  • Learning Team 26

The Program

The online M.A. or Ed.S. degree in Education Leadership, Management and Policy consists of 13 courses and incorporates two on-campus weekend residency visits, which afford you the opportunity to meet face-to-face with professors and your peers in the program. Note: those who already hold an M.A. are eligible for the Ed.S. Cohorts usually start in summer. Orientation provides an opportunity for students to visit the 160+ year old campus located in a suburban setting outside of Manhattan and meet fellow members of the cohort.

Utilizing state-of-the-art learning technologies in a highly interactive educational environment, our programs are built on practical, rigorous curricula. All students graduate with the knowledge to lead K-12 environments in a consistently changing global environment.


The faculty in the College of Education and Human Services are expert researchers and practitioners in teacher and leader preparation as well as professional psychology and family therapy. Many are actively engaged with schools and community agencies, modeling best practices to their students in the university classroom and in the field. Collaboration within departments and across is encouraged with the recognition that supporting and improving the lives of children, families and communities is a complex process.
