“The doctoral program in Educational Leadership offered me the opportunity to explore the theoretical, historical, and societal influences of issues that I face on a day-to-day basis as an Assistant Superintendent. I believe this experience has given me a deeper pool of knowledge that I can draw from as I carry out my professional responsibilities. The cohort experience provided a built-in support group and allowed for further learning through the sharing of experiences of administrators throughout the state.”

Ed.D in Educational Leadership, 2009

The University of Maine’s graduate programs in PreK-12 Educational Leadership combine the study of organizations and leadership theory with the development of skills and capacities for relationship-building, educational planning, evaluation and management. Programs address many leadership roles essential to quality school performance, most commonly teacher leadership, administration and community leadership.

The PreK-12 Educational Leadership program offers degrees at the M.Ed., C.A.S. and doctorate levels.
