Welcome to the Department of Educational Administration

About the department

The Department of Educational Administration offers nine graduate-level programs that prepare educational professionals to serve effectively at all levels of leadership from preK-12 in public, Catholic and other non-public schools. We also seek to contribute to the knowledge base in school administration and provide service to all pre-K-12 schools.

We offer courses at UD's Main Campus, Daniel J. Curran Place and online, allowing our students to achieve their educational goals at their own pace, while maintaining their professional responsibilities.
