Policy, Organization, and Leadership Studies (POLS)
POLS is a nine-month, cohort-based Master’s program in which a diverse cohort of students gain the knowledge, theory, and hands-on experience necessary for effective leadership in a wide range of education enterprises. Through graduate coursework and capstone field projects with partner sites, students hone skills of critical analysis, teamwork, and problem-solving. We take advantage of our strategic position as a global hub of innovation to develop mission-driven professionals.
