Our Masters and EdD programs prepare leaders for schools, school systems, community-based organizations and non-profit organizations. Our PhD program prepares researchers, policy makers, and professors of educational leadership and policy studies. As a program long dedicated to enhancing equity, diversity, and opportunity in education, we especially encourage candidates from historically underrepresented groups to apply.
