Leadership and Administration

The leadership and administration programs at Teachers College educate, train, and serve current and future leaders, including administrators, policy makers, researchers, psychologists, and educators from around the world. The cohort-based curriculum weaves together research and analysis skills with an academic, theoretical, and evidence-based knowledge, as well as training in the reflective, proactive, and transformational learning that is a hallmark of the College.

Students are prospective administrators, policy makers, researchers, psychologists, and educators in public and private education, higher and post secondary education, and adult education. They also work in health administration, politics, advocacy, organizational behavior, and organizational development and change.

Graduates take on roles as leaders, managers, and administrators in a variety of organizations, serving as effective change agents and decision makers in settings such as human resource management, education, health administration, or conflict resolution; and as educators, administrators, researchers, policy analysts, consultants, and public officials.
