Program Details

The EdD in Administrative Leadership from Concordia University-Portland prepares candidates to be transformational leaders guiding public or nonpublic schools. Classes are 8 weights in length, and are limited to 15 to 17 candidates to support quality discussions. Our EdD degree program includes a virtual residency, which is aimed at the practitioner-scholar who already balances a career, family, and other obligations. This specialization is designed to give current administrators additional knowledge and expertise so they can positively impact their school, district, or organization. You can complete your EdD in about 3.5 years, in a program that prepares servant-leaders for the transformation of society.
