The Education Leadership program provides students with the knowledge and skills needed to become successful leaders in an educational setting.

The University of Kentucky requires students to fulfill 30 credit hours to complete the program. Once admitted into the program, students will be assigned an advisor and will meet with them during the first semester to create an individualized curriculum contract that will be reviewed each year and updated accordingly. Students will also be required to complete a summative assessment in which they will select an assignment from one completed course that has an action research component and work to revise and expand the paper for the oral exam.
