MEd program – Leadership in Indigenous Education and Organizations Cohort

Announcement: The Department of Educational Administration will be offering an EADM Masters Cohort in Indigenous Educational Leadership beginning in January 2023. Application deadline: Sept. 1, 2022.

The Masters of Educational Administration’s Indigenous Educational Leadership cohort is an academically rigorous course-based Masters degree specialization, designed to support current and aspiring leaders in Indigenous communities and educational organizations. Students take existing courses which are tailored to provide content specific to Indigenous educational contexts, there is greater attention to Indigenous perspectives in scholarship, and the instructors have relevant experience and knowledge. Other unique features of the IELC include intensive academic skill-building supports, an Advisory Group of Indigenous educational leaders, and courses taught by Indigenous instructors (mostly EADM graduates). Eight of the ten courses are offered online, with two Summer symposia, for a total of a 24 month program. Applicants should identify their interest in the cohort in their statement of intent. Please email for detailed information on this cohort.

ProgramExpected LengthProject and/or thesisCourse based
M.Ed.2 years
Ph.D.4 years

The central objective of the Master of Education in Educational Administration is to provide a problem- and inquiry-driven environment through enriched practical, research-based, and theoretical understandings of educational issues in the administration and leadership of organizations, communities, and government. The department is actively involved in research relating to:

  • educational leadership
  • rural education
  • school effectiveness
  • leadership in post-secondary education

Course-based MEd

The course-based program offers students the opportunity to pursue depth of understanding in areas of personal concern where in-person courses are scheduled to facilitate part-time study while students maintain their employment in schools, as well as full-time options available for those seeking that enrollment. Recently, more than 100 students have been provided the opportunity to engage in graduate education in their own communities (including one First Nation), with their own school-division colleague cohorts, and tailored to the specific needs of their school communities.

Thesis-based MEd and PhD

Research is central in this program. A culminating objective is for Thesis Program students to conduct and defend an original piece of research.

Program objectives are achieved through accessibility to experiences that facilitate academic attainment within program coursework and the successful completion of a research project resulting in the production of a thesis. Required coursework for all students includes a mixture of theoretical and practical content. In addition, objectives are achieved through the following programmatic and extra-curricular opportunities: rigorous coursework, research assistance in Tri-Agency and other funded research projects, experiential learning through laboratory and international study, conference participation, co-authorship and presentation, and seminar leadership.

Local and International student engagement

In alignment with the local and international student engagement efforts of the University of Saskatchewan, the Department of Educational Administration is pleased to provide an overview of our programming and specific information of interest to many potential and active Indigenous graduate students (in Plains Cree) and international graduate students from China and Brazil.

Sobre o Departamento de Administração Educacional da Universidade de Saskatchewan

A Universidade de Saskatchewan está localizada às margens ao sul do rio Saskatchewan na cidade de Saskatoon, no Canadá. O Departamento de Administração Educacional se estabeleceu em 1964, tem atualmente 10 membros do corpo docente, e oferece o maior programa de pós-graduação na Universidade de Saskatchewan. Em 2012, um Comitê Internacional de Avaliação de Programas constatou que os programas de pós-graduação do Departamento de Administração Educacional eram semelhantes aos programas das Universidade de Londres e Universidade de Cambridge em termos de rigor, bolsa de estudos e sucesso.

O Departamento de programas de pós-graduação da Administração Educacional são planejados por professores, diretores de escolas, administradores do distrito escolar e funcionários, administradores universitários e funcionários do Ministério da Educação. Áreas-chaves do departamento de ensino, pesquisa e especialização incluem teoria organizacional, teoria e prática de administração escolar, teoria da liderança, administração da educação aborígene, administração de educação intercultural e internacional, financiamento educacional, legislação educacional e métodos de investigação educacional. Toda a programação é ministrada em Inglês.

O Departamento de Administração Educacional oferece três programas de pós-graduação para estudantes internacionais: Mestrado em Educação  (curso baseado em trabalhos), Mestrado em Educação (tese) e Doutorado em Filosofia (tese). Os três programas começam todo ano em Setembro. As inscrições para o programa de PhD devem ser recebidas antes do dia 30 de Novembro e o curso tem início em Setembro. Para o programa de Mestrado as inscrições devem ser recebidas antes do dia 01 de Janeiro e o curso tem início em Setembro também. Detalhes adicionais importantes estão disponíveis nas páginas do website do Departamento de língua Inglêsa.

Sessenta e cinco por cento dos nossos alunos de doutorado são empregados em universidades e faculdades canadenses e internacionais. A maioria dos graduados do nosso Mestrado são empregados como diretores de escola e vice-diretores. Muitos outros alunos do nosso curso de mestrado e doutorados escolheram carreiras como administradores seniors de organizações educacionais.

As seguintes informações são importantes para que os estudantes internacionais possam entender melhor o programa:

  • O diploma do Departamento de Administração Educacional não dá direito a licenciatura de professor na província de Saskatchewan ou do Canadá.
  • Todos os alunos em potencial podem se matricular para entrar no Mestrado de Educação (tese), mas a Comissão de Programas de Pós-Graduação do Departamento pode revisar a matrícula para que os alunos sejam admitidos no Mestrado em Educação (curso baseado em trabalhos). Após várias matérias bem sucedidas os alunos podem solicitar a transferência para o programa-tese.
  • Normalmente são exigidos dos estudantes dois anos de estudo em tempo integral para completar um mestrado. Alunos de doutoramento muitas vezes necessitam cinco anos de estudo em tempo integral.
  • Os estudantes internacionais são incentivados a participar de atividades extras departamentais, além das aulas normais e devem fazer um esforço para interagir com colegas e professores de língua Inglêsa. Estudantes que não são bem sucedidos em nossos programas tendem a se sentir solitários.
  • Os estudantes internacionais em potencial deverão completar os testes de proficiência do idioma Inglês. Nós só aceitamos os alunos cuja habilidade na língua seja compatível às normas mostradas nesta página vinculada.
  • Após a admissão no programa de pós-graduação, os estudantes internacionais podem ser solicitados a melhorar suas habilidades na língua Inglêsa além do requisito de admissão. A Universidade de Saskatchewan oferece cursos destinados a estudantes internacionais que necessitem melhorar o seu Inglês.
  • Os vistos canadenses para os estudantes podem levar vários meses para serem processados. O aluno não terá permissão para entrar no Canadá como um estudante a menos que toda a documentação do Visto esteja completa.
  • Se você tiver alguma dúvida, favor entre em contato com o Chefe do Departamento, Dr. Paul Newton por e-mail em Inglês.
