Doctor of Education

Department of Educational Leadership

The doctoral program offers two distinct specialties developing a depth of research skills appropriate for either an analyst shaping the education policy surrounding a school setting or a high-level school-based scholar/practitioner.

At the Foggy Bottom (Main Campus), the Ed.D. has a specialty in Education Policy to prepare researchers and analysts to advance knowledge and improve practice for the purposes of promoting excellence, equity, and efficiency in educational systems and organizations. In a world of accelerating change and a growing need for better understanding of the practices by educational organizations and the policies that govern them, students graduate with leadership positions as skilled analysts who are able to solve problems, make informed decisions, and help improve practice.

At our Virginia Science & Technology Center, Alexandria Graduate Center, and Hampton Roads Center, the Ed.D. has a specialty in Education Administration that brings together University and field-based faculty members with professionals who have extensive experience in local, state, national, and international level positions. The program prepares students for leadership responsibilities within all facets of the educational arena. Researchers and practitioners who aspire to high levels of responsibility in educational organizations will develop leadership skills through coursework, seminars, field experiences, research associations with faculty, and self-directed activities.
