Doctorate in Educational Leadership

 

The doctoral degree program in Educational Leadership engages adult learners in a rigorous, creative and meaningful learning experience. The program is practitioner-based, and built upon professional experiences that focus on transformational leaders who strive to create educational systems that are grounded in research, are culturally responsive, strategic, and ultimately improve student learning.

The 60-hour program of study reflects the visionary thinking needed for leadership in today’s 21st century educational organizations. It emphasizes effective leadership including strategic planning, using data to make instructional improvements, building a culture of trust, and understanding how theory guides the educational leader to solve problems of practice.

Candidates enrolled in the doctoral program are provided with two separate areas of concentration from which to choose. Adult learners enrolled in the Administration concentration will take coursework designed to prepare them for careers in upper-level administrative roles. The Instructional concentration is designed for candidates who may wish to continue serving in an instructional role and focuses on curriculum development, culturally relevant pedagogy, supervision and evaluation of instructional programs.  

For more information about the Ed.D. program, contact Dr. Amy Holcombe, Chair of the Department of Leadership Studies via email aholcomb@highpoint.edu or telephone (336) 841-9575.
