Doctor of Education Leadership in Curriculum and Instruction
Ed.D. of Educational Leadership in Curriculum & Instruction
The Doctorate in Educational Leadership, Curriculum and Instruction (Ed.D) program is 50 hours beyond a master’s in education. The program uses the cohort model with a blended delivery of courses (one online and one seated per semester). In all coursework, use of technology as an instructional tool will be emphasized and articulated.
The Educational Leadership coursework provides an opportunity for an individual to become a lead educator in a K-12 school district. With an additional emphasis in Curriculum and Instruction, the degree would provide the education and training for an individual to be a curriculum specialist, an assessment officer, a secondary level department chair, or a professor in an educator preparation program. Coursework can also prepare students with a master’s in educational administration and a current building principal’s certificate to obtain K-12 school superintendent certification. In all coursework, use of technology as an instructional tool will be emphasized and articulated.
