The Leadership in Educational Administration Doctorate (LEAD) Ed.D. program prepares future leaders for research, leadership, and policy positions throughout the education system.
Do you want to advance your career without having to leave your job? This program provides a unique path for students interested in becoming educational leaders with a curriculum that links research with practice. Ultimately, graduates are prepared for careers and advancement as leaders, researchers, and policymakers at the school, district, state, and national level.
The unique format offers classes online, with students attending two Saturday meetings per semester through synchronous virtual meetings with other asynchronous components in between. We admit students to the blended LEAD program annually. Typically, the degree can be completed in four years of part-time study.
The LEAD EdD program is not a principal preparation program. Students interested in Level 1 certification for school administration may consider our MEd and EdS programs.
