Overview

The Department of Administrative Leadership offers a graduate program of studies with three emphases: educational administration and supervision, adult and continuing education leadership, or higher education administration.

The emphasis on educational administration and supervision prepares the student for a career as a school district administrator, elementary, middle, or secondary school administrator, director of special education and pupil services, school business manager, or curriculum director. Through this program of studies, the student can fulfill professional education requirements for administrative and supervisory licenses in Wisconsin and most other states.

The emphasis on adult and continuing education leadership prepares the student for positions of leadership in post-secondary programs including vocational and technical education, university extension, continuing professional education, in-service training and human resource development, adult basic education, adult literacy, and educational leadership and program development in health, religious, manpower and other agencies and community educational programs.

The focus on Human Resource and Workforce Development within this emphasis is offered as an online program.

The emphasis on higher education administration prepares the student for careers in higher education including such options as student advisors, managers of support programs for traditionally underrepresented students, student housing specialists, student programming specialists, business managers, and specific administrative positions at all levels of higher education organizations.

The Department also offers a course of study leading to the Specialist Certificate in Administrative Leadership—required for the school superintendency and recommended for other school or adult education administrative or supervisory positions.

Under the auspices of the Ph.D. program in Urban Education, the Department offers doctoral level specializations in educational administration and in Adult, Continuing, and Higher Education Leadership.
