Educational Leadership: Doctor of Education
The doctorate in educational Leadership (Ed.D.) is designed for delivery to a cohort of full-time educational professionals on weekends, evenings, and during the summer. The Ed.D. is based on the premise that learning takes place through an integration of course work and experiences that stem from a clear conception of leadership, the knowledge base of the field, and a structure that allows doctoral students and faculty to collaborate on shared work improving education in the State of Connecticut.
The Ed.D. includes two distinct strands that support the learning needs of two different groups of educators. The PreK-12 strand has many innovative features and serves teachers and administrators in PreK-12 education who want to prepare for a variety of leadership positions: principles, lead teachers, department heads, curriculum and assessment specialists, assistant superintendents, and superintendents.
The higher education strand serves professionals employed in higher education institutions who aspire to a wide range of leadership positions in academic or student affairs at two-or four-year institutions.
