Doctor of Education

Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership (Ed.D.)

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree in K-12 educational leadership prepares leaders who confront and adapt to challenges in the complex and ever-changing educational environment. The program is built not only upon a theoretical and research base, but also upon an experiential understanding of pedagogy and administrative practice.  

Goals of the Program

  • To provide rigorous, integrated preparation on a part-time schedule for educational leaders who can make educational improvements in their workplaces
  • To offer educational leaders the knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to apply research theory and professional experience to the solution of educational problems
  • To support educational leaders in their efforts to become skilled in systematic inquiry, deliberate reflection, and focused action
  • To provide an integrated curriculum which serves as a framework for integrating the student's life experience and vision

Most classes are offered in the evening in the traditional classroom format. Some are available on Saturdays, or in an online or hybrid format.

The doctoral program is a part-time program. You may decide how many courses you want to take per semester, understanding that there is an eight-year time frame for program completion.
