Educational Management M.S. with Social Justice Specialization

Leverage Your Leadership Strengths

There is an ongoing need for educational leaders who possess the attitudes and aptitudes to address the many challenges related to leadership that address cultural diversity, equity, and democracy. For those who seek educational leadership roles, but not necessarily Principal certification, an understanding of the issues related to social justice, leadership and diversity is key to effective reform. The specialization in Social Justice, when added to the Master’s in Educational Management, provides candidates with not only an edge in the competitive job market, but also a deeper understanding to the practices inherent in addressing the structures and norms that result in inequitable education and knowledge of the importance of the advocacy role that leaders must take to influence policy. The Master of Science in Educational Management with a Social Justice Specialization is available through both hybrid and online programs of study.
