Doctorate in Educational Leadership


cped_consortium_member_2014The Doctoral Degree Program in Educational Leadership is a practitioner-based, professional experience that focuses on the practices transformational leaders need to create educational systems that are grounded in research, are culturally responsive, strategic, and which 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 will also have the opportunity to take courses in Strategic Communication through the Nido Qubein School of Communication. Graduate courses will be delivered using an Executive Cohort model which is designed to accommodate the working professional, emphasizes problem-based learning, action research, and field-based projects using authentic school district data and artifacts.  As of 2014, High Point University is a member of the Carnegie Project on the Educational Doctorate or CPED.

For more information about the Ed.D. program, contact Dr. Jane C. Bowser.
