Principal Leadership (PK-22)

Governors State University offers cohorts for the hybrid Master of Arts in Educational Administration (Principal Leadership) program at our beautiful University Park campus. Classes meet one evening per week in a convenient and effective blend of online and face-to-face instruction. 

In addition, GovState recruits for cohorts at convenience education sites throughout the region. GovState is pleased to partner with school districts to offer convenient educational access in our "grow-your-own" program. 

For more information about bringing a cohort to your school, contact our program coordinator, Dr. David Conrad, at dconrad@govst.edu
