Educational Administration, EdD

Our Doctor of Education (EdD) program in educational administration is ideal if you are a PreK–12 school leader/administrator at the building and/or district level and you are interested in either advancing your academic career or seeking stimulating professional development. Our program is designed to prepare future building and district level leaders, frequently operating at the highest levels of administration. The EdD program is different from the PhD program in that the EdD has a greater emphasis on application to identifying and addressing problems of practice as a leader/administrator.
