The graduate programs in Educational Administration enable educators to acquire scholarly knowledge, technical skills, intellectual curiosity and legal and ethical awareness in order to make a positive contribution in the organization and administration of public and nonpublic schools. The programs seek to produce informed leaders whose expertise will be well grounded in theory to support their efforts to deal with varied issues and problems in the school setting and to make innovative contributions to the reform and restructuring of current educational practice.
St. John’s is also committed to being a leader in technology. We offer one of the first completely online degrees for a School Building Leader Master’s and a District-Leader Advanced Certificate, recognized by New York State.
Permanent Teaching Certification in an Administrator’s Degree
The degree includes a subject-matter concentration that can qualify teachers for both permanent teaching certification as well as building-level administrative certification. If a teacher already has permanent certification they may specialize in an additional area such as Gifted & Talented Education, Special Education, TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), Instructional Technology, or Curriculum Studies.
Please note that the full degree cannot be taken at the Long Island Graduate Center and at least one course must be taken at our Queens campus.
Please see a list of our Administrative and Instructional Leadership faculty.
