Educational Administration


Programme Overview


As societies experience change, schools and other social organizations are influenced by such change. The management and leadership of schools, therefore, become more complex which demand that school leaders be prepared adequately to face such challenges. The programme in Educational Administration is designed to enable participants to understand the nature of organizations and of leadership, the administrative processes necessary for the effective management of the physical plant, financial resources, staff and students, the factors influencing educational planning and the management of curriculum and instruction. Administrative theories are explored and discussed as the basis for practice and research relevant to the Jamaican and Caribbean context is reviewed.
