The aim of the master's program in Educational Administration and Planning is to become a center of excellence in educational administration, educational policy development and school management by promoting advanced level of teaching and research. Within this framework the program targets:

To build students' knowledge and understanding in the field of educational administration and planning, school leadership and management, educational policy development and some other allied disciplines including curriculum development, instruction, measurement and assessment,

To build the capacity of the students to design and carry out research in various domains of educational administration and planning and allied disciplines,

To develop understanding and skills in other fields of education.

As a result, the students are expected to be able to follow developments in educational administration and planning, reframe these developments by use of theory and develop practical suggestions to improve the capacity of schools the at national and international levels. A philosophy putting the students at the center of teaching practice in various seminars is expected to make the students true life-long learners. The program accepts students with an undergraduate diploma from different disciplines. Those students who do not have a teaching certificate and/or lack specific courses that are required for study at the masters' level are accepted to a scientific preparation program that may take one or two semesters. Students have to successfully complete 8 courses, two of which are research and statistics, three area courses, two electives and one thesis preparation course. Students who complete the coursework carry out a research as their masters' thesis, and graduate from the program by successfully defending it.
