Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis

(offered in cooperation with the University of Wisconsin-Madison)

According to the report, How Leadership Influences Student Learning by Leithwood, Seashore Louis, Anderson, S., and Wahlstrom, K (2004), "Leadership is second only to classroom instruction among all school-related factors that contribute to what students learn at school." Principals do make a difference in schools.

The Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis cooperative program provides the opportunity for educators to obtain a Master of Science (M.S.) degree, with certification in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Coursework is offered on the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater campus taught by Whitewater faculty or visiting UW-Madison faculty. This Cooperative Program can provide the graduate foundation for academic and scaffolding activities leading to an educational specialist certificate or doctoral degree at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Educational Leadership & Policy Analysis.
