What is the Scholarly Paper Requirement?
This information pertains to degree programs in Educational Leadership.
The scholarly paper requirement provides a measure of your potential and current ability to write at the graduate level. While student skills will increase through exposure to our program, we seek evidence that you can coherently present a thesis, develop an idea, and present your ideas on paper. Students may write on any topic in the general field of K-12 or Higher Education learning, teaching, critical issues or leadership the student deems important. Regardless of topic, the paper must include citations and a reference list.
For the Ph.D. program, the length of the paper is no more than 10-20 pages.
