Educational Administration

Program Information

At Western Washington University we pride ourselves in welcoming participants who come to us as students, are treated as colleagues, and graduate as life-long friends. Since 1944 WWU has developed strong educational leaders in a program taught by practicing educational experts who provide:

  • Curriculum aligned to the Professional Educational Leaders Standards
  • Practical, relevant, research-based coursework
  • School-based assignments
  • Strong student support

All classes are taught by current, or recently retired, WA Administrators in conjunction with WWU Faculty. The Educational Administration program is offered at four sites — Bellingham, Bremerton, Seattle, Tacoma. Courses will include a blend of online and face-to-face meetings.

The Educational Administration program is designed to prepare elementary and secondary school teachers and ESAs to assume leadership roles as principals, vice principals, program and department leaders, or instructional technology specialists. Candidates receive a master’s degree and/or are recommended for principal certification after completion of a year-long internship.
