M.A. in Educational Leadership

Through the Mary Ann Remick Leadership Program, the Alliance for Catholic Education offers a Master of Arts degree in Educational Leadership. Integrating graduate level coursework with a leadership internship experience, the program allows potential leaders to work toward state certification and licensure for service as school principals while teaching and helping to lead a Catholic school.

Courses are offered through a 44-credit hour sequence delivered over 25 months, including four-week summer sessions, a distance-learning enhanced administrative internship during the school year, and annual retreats. The centerpiece of the summer programs is an innovative, inter-disciplinary curriculum, taught by a distinguished faculty from Notre Dame and around the country. Leadership participants receive on-site support from mentor principals and occasional site visits by ACE team members to monitor professional progress. The curriculum is specifically tailored to foster Catholic school leadership. The program culminates in a master’s degree in educational administration for all participants and with state principal certification for those with teaching licenses.
