Doctorate of Education

Prepare to work with vulnerable students, families and communities through an innovative, social justice educational leadership program.

Apply theory and research to issues of leadership in complex organizations including schools, district offices, community centers and policy organizations. Designed by expert faculty members within the Educational Leadership and Policy program, this program will enhance your ability to improve outcomes in your organization. You will tackle challenging educational problems through case studies, stimulations, group activities and individual projects.

Your capstone project will be a dissertation in practice (DiP). The DiP examines a problem of practice, which is an area of concern or issue that has been identified in the context of your professional practice. Upon graduation, you will be prepared to work in a range of educational leadership roles such as teacher-leader, principal and superintendent. The EdD can be completed in as little as 3 years.
