 Educational Leadership

​The Educational Leadership Program is at the post-master's level and leads to New York State Certification as School Building Leader. Courses are also offered that may be applied toward meeting the requirements for the New York State Certificate of School District Leader.

The college will admit to the program in Educational Leadership only those whom it considers to be potentially outstanding leaders in schools and communities. The program aims to develop the personal qualities and professional skills essential for educational leadership. To this end, it provides opportunities of many kinds, including seminar courses, simulated experiences, and planned fieldwork experiences. Each candidate’s program is planned individually to make certain it includes the graduate studies that are needed to improve his/her background for the professional career for which he/she is preparing. Candidates are carefully selected from among those applicants who meet specific qualifications.

All candidates must meet appropriate academic and scholarship standards to remain in the program and complete the program.  Candidates must also demonstrate appropriate personal, professional, and ethical conduct as established by the program and the educational leadership profession (e.g., ethical and professional standards).  All candidates are subject to review, and sanctions, including dismissal, as a result of academic and/or professional deficiencies.
For specific program information, go to Educational Leadership Handbook.


Openings are competitively filled; admission cannot be guaranteed to all who meet the stated requirements. Applicants must have a Master's degree from an accredited college or university (or the foreign equivalent) and an average of B in study relevant to teaching.

Applications accepted up to April 15 for September admission. For any questions or assistance applying for this program please contact the Graduate Admission's Office at 718-997-5200.

Candidates applying to the Graduate Program in School Leadership for the Fall of 2016 can apply even if they have not yet taken the GRE.  All application materials will be reviewed.  Applicants can receive conditional acceptance with the expectation that they will submit evidence that they have taken the GRE by January 20th of 2017.  For questions regarding the GRE requirement, please click here
