Master of Arts in Educational Leadership & Policy
Master of Arts in Educational Leadership & Policy Overview
Are you curious and passionate about researching, critiquing and advancing issues of educational leadership, policy, social diversity and change — particularly in relation to PK-12 education systems? This may be the place for you.
The MA program in Educational Leadership and Policy fosters the study of problems in leadership and policy with respect to educational programs, with an emphasis on elementary and secondary schools. It will best serve students who have a commitment to scholarship and research as a means of deepening their understanding of leadership action in schools or in other educational and service institutions.
The MA is available through both full-time and part-time studies. While experience in teaching and administration is not an essential prerequisite for admission, such experience provides a desirable background. The department welcomes applicants with diverse but relevant backgrounds.

Why I Chose Leadership, Adult & Higher Education
Sean Hartley (Master of Education 2023)
"When I made the decision to pursue an M.Ed, I chose OISE for a number of reasons. Chief among them was the curriculum; even within the Educational Leadership and Policy stream, I had the freedom to pursue subjects and topics that I found interesting. Professors and instructors were top-notch, allowing me to learn from their expertise and challenging my own thinking. I did my best academic work of my life at OISE, which is due in no small part to the faculty."
