The online Education Specialist in Educational Leadership program is intended to help extend professional understanding and practice in the area of education through doctoral-level courses but without the research component associated with the Doctor of Philosophy. The curriculum teaches about Christ-centered perspectives in educational institutions and how to represent education from a biblical perspective in broader society by developing capacities to think, communicate, and model biblical excellence in educational leadership positions. Coursework covers areas such as leadership theory, school law, financial principles, faculty and staff supervision, decision making, strategic planning, and development.
