Our Doctor of Education (EdD) in Educational Leadership is a fully online doctoral degree program that teaches seasoned educators and professionals specific, research-informed leadership practices, and prepares them to appropriately apply their learning to their own workplace and leadership roles.

The primary goal of the EdD program is to prepare graduates to act as scholarly and influential leaders who will have an effective impact on, and promote sustainable change in, their workplaces.

Although this program emphasizes informed leadership in education, it is designed for formal and informal leaders in practice and does not focus on preparing graduates for traditional academic positions.
