Take Your Educational Career Further

If you’re interested in taking on a leadership role within an elementary, middle, or high school, or at the college or university level, a Master of Education in Leadership from City University of Seattle will offer you the best preparation. You’ll gain the skills to manage day-to-day operations, provide solid leadership and training to teachers, and create a safe and positive learning space for all students.

Classes can be taken completely online, or through a combination of online and in-class study. Both provide small classes sizes for more individualized instruction.

CityU’s School of Applied Leadership faculty is made up of successful and distinguished school leaders who teach what they do for a living. A bachelor’s degree from an accredited university immediately qualifies individuals who wish to apply.

City University of Seattle offers a renowned Master of Education (MEd) in Leadership for professional educators seeking to expand their career opportunities.

For students who complete this master’s in leadership online program and want to pursue a Washington state administrator certification, they may return within five years for an additional 12-credit internship and seminar series, resulting in a residency principal or program administrator (or both) certificate. Alternatively, candidates may apply directly to CityU’s MEd Leadership with Administrator Certification 45-credit program.
