Earn a Master of Arts Degree

Schools today need 21st-century leaders who are knowledgeable, reflective, and have the ability to work with a diverse array of constituents. They need administrative leaders who can promote the success of their students and ensure a safe, efficient, and effective learning environment.

And with just nine additional credits you can earn a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership.

Cal Lutheran is so well respected in the educational world. I knew my Master’s in Educational Leadership would be recognized and valued. And the program is challenging, inspiring and relevant.
