The University of Central Florida College of Education and Human Performance, School of Teaching, Learning and Leadership is proud to present the totally online Master of Arts Degree Program in Educational Leadership. This degree is designed as a global offering to persons who desire a Master’s Degree offered totally online from one of the most respected university educational leadership programs in the United States.

The Educational Leadership MA also offers two tracks focused on higher education: Higher Education/Student Personnel and Community College Education, both of which have different admission, enrollment, and graduation requirements.
