P-20 Education (doctoral programs)

Our educators work hard to inspire and lead you to success so that you may one day also do the same in your own careers. Our offered P-20 Education programs show you how to lead, enforce and research educational policy and procedures at the college level, while also learning how to make a difference in the educational community.

We offer two nationally recognized Doctoral Degrees in Educational Leadership and Higher Education. The doctoral program major in Educational Studies, with an area of specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education (ELHE) allows for concentration in educational leadership or higher education and is available for individuals interested in any level (P-20) of education.

New applicants to our Ed.D. with a superintendent endorsement should look into our Big Red Leader tuition remission program as they might be eligible for a 15% tuition discount for this P-12 School Leadership program.

The Department offers a course of study leading to Ed.D. or Ph.D. degrees. Students seeking either of these degrees major in Education Studies. Under this broad major, EDAD provides the specialization in Educational Leadership and Higher Education and there are three concentrations within this specialization:
