Ed.D. in Leadership

Are you ready to incite change? As a student in the Ed.D. in Leadership program, you will select an area of emphasis and pursue original research. You will partner with fellow professionals and learn to address real-world problems with evidence-based decision-making. Under the direction of a dissertation committee, you will develop five chapters that contribute to your chosen field. Accelerated pathways are available if you are graduated from an ACE master’s program or have an Ed.S. or are considered “All But Dissertation (ABD)” from another institution. Because the program is entirely online, it requires no residency, travel or lodging.
