Course of Study

The Seattle University Educational Administration’s Theory of Action is what makes it unique among its peers. We see the work of our program as an Inquiry into the Service of Leadership, in which:

  • We frontload context & scholarship, with a focus on critical theory, educational justice, instructional leadership and community engagement
  • We partner applied learning with reflective practice, self understanding and advanced leadership study
  • We work to build an expanding management toolbox
  • We operate as a cohort, to establish a model network of professional learning & support


Graduate students in the EDAD program may pursue a Masters in Educational Administration (47 credits) and/or a post-masters Principal's Certification or Program Administrator's Certification (36 credits).
