Graduates emerge well equipped to fulfill leadership roles in Pre-K–12 schools as principals, assistant principals, teacher leaders, curriculum leaders, and department chairs.

Most students complete the Online M.A. in Educational Leadership with the Online Preliminary Administrative Services Credential (PASC), Tier I in a combined program also offered at APU in an online or on-campus format.

For those interested in earning their degree on campus, APU offers the traditional Master of Arts in Educational Leadership at seven Southern California locations.
