• The Marin Leadership Institute/SFSU graduate level program in Educational Administration and Leadership and Preliminary Administrative Services Credential is a 12 month, 33 semester-unit program designed with the working professional in mind!


    All classes adhere to a hybrid/blended instructional model, with face-to-face meetings scheduled every other Saturday while PK-12 schools are in session (not to exceed 10 face-to-face meetings per semester; a typical full-time semester consists of 9-10 all-day meetings).


    Duration: The program commences at the start of each Spring semester (January) and concludes at the end of the Fall semester (December/January). Spring and Fall semesters adhere to a full-time enrollment schedule, and a part-time schedule during Summer session – a typical summer session runs anywhere between five and six weeks in duration.
