Master of Education in Educational Leadership

The College of Education and Marquette University are committed to the next generation of school leaders. Our faculty are dedicated to developing outstanding professional change agents in search of social justice. A graduate degree in educational leadership is designed for teachers or administrators wishing to complete a master's degree or certification as principals and/ or directors of instruction. You can also earn the principal or director of instruction license without the MEd.

Whether you teach in a public or private school, we're here to make your next degree attainable.

  • Teachers in the Milwaukee Metropolitan area are eligible for 1.5 scholarship credits each semester. This amounts to half-off of their tuition during the fall and spring semester (at one course per semester) plus an additional 1.5 credits in the summer.
  • Aspiring Catholic school leaders are eligible for a tuition scholarship funded by the generosity of a private donor since 1980. If you work in an elementary or secondary school in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, you are eligible to apply for a scholarship that can pay up to two-thirds of one graduate course per term.
