We offer you a warm welcome to the Department of Educational Leadership at The University of Montana. Historically recognized for its ability to educate organizational leaders, The Department of Educational Leadership is made up of faculty who are dedicated to effective teaching, scholarship and service. All of our programs carry national, regional, and state accreditation and are accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges, and the Montana Board of Public Education.

The Department of Educational Leadership offers a variety of face to face, online, and remote classes for each program.
