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

Format: Hybrid

Program Description:

Leadership for small higher education institutions requires creativity, flexibility, strategic thinking, an entrepreneurial stance, and a respect for student-centered institutions. The mission of the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership is to prepare professionals for leadership roles in the administration of small colleges and universities, non-profit agencies and schools.

This doctoral program integrates research and practice so that doctoral students understand the historical, political, social, and philosophical aspects of small colleges and universities which have challenges and opportunities that distinguish them from larger institutions.  Applied learning, the hallmark of Endicott, is demonstrated through an apprenticeship in which doctoral students explore areas of specializations within senior leadership positions such as academic affairs, student development, institutional advancement, financial affairs, faculty development, and facilities.

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership is designed for career professionals in higher education who wish to attain leadership positions in small- to mid-sized colleges or universities, including both two and four-year college settings, or in smaller colleges or satellite campuses within larger universities. In this cohort-based program, a combination of different roles, perspectives, and experiences enriches the program and its participants.
