About Department of Education Leadership, Management and Policy

The Department of Educational Leadership, Management and Policy is dedicated to serving students seeking educational leadership roles in public, private and parochial schools, colleges, universities, non-profit organizations and other education policy organizations. Programs of study leading to the degrees Master of Arts, Educational Specialist, Doctor of Education and Doctor of Philosophy are individualized to meet student needs. Candidates may broaden their knowledge and understanding of the process of education, improve their professional techniques or prepare for leadership positions or careers in the human service professions. Academic excellence, service, managerial competence, ethics, diversity, values and visionary leadership are department programmatic goals.

The department is at home in a state-of-the-art facility on the Seton Hall campus, yet is also takes its programs to many other educational and government sites that offer the technology to keep pace with current training requirements. Many courses are available in the evening and on weekends to meet the needs of working professionals.
