Students can receive advanced training in policy analysis, supervision, and conflict resolution as well as learn how to develop research-based solutions to real-world challenges in education. With the educational leadership specialization, students can train to become effective leaders who find ways to improve school policies and advance educational systems. This program is ideal for education professionals who wish to earn a doctoral degree but are seeking a faster alternative to a traditional PhD program. Additionally, the Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration – Educational Leadership requires a final capstone project rather than a dissertation. With the knowledge gained in this program, students could work at institutions of higher education or branch out into roles at other organizations that shape educational policy and procedure. Within the educational leadership area of study, students can explore subjects like special education administration, issues and trends in learning technologies, and organizational analysis. By developing a firm understanding of modern trends and issues in educational leadership, students can prepare for roles as deans, provosts, chief academic officers, college/university presidents, admissions directors, professors, and curriculum specialists.
