Educational Doctorate in Educational Leadership
The Educational Leadership Doctorate program is designed for working professionals seeking training to become highly qualified educational leaders for P-12 school districts or community colleges. Representatives from P-12 school districts and community colleges work collaboratively with CSULB faculty and administrators to design, implement, and evaluate this program.
Emphasis is placed on the expanding and changing role of education for social change to meet the needs of society. Graduate students in a learning cohort community will experience an interdisciplinary approach to the study of educational leadership, teaching and learning, organizational development, management and research.
