The doctoral degree program in Education Leadership is designed to provide administrative and supervisory skills for potential and practicing administrators in elementary, secondary and higher education institutions in New Jersey as well as other state department of Education settings. The program focuses on training informed leaders through the utilization of scholarly research and theoretical models which are applied to experiential situations.
The Weekend Cohort Program
The weekend cohort model of the Ed.D. in Education Leadership is comprised of a cadre of highly qualified students that meet on campus in an interactive, group-centered environment for each course during two full weekends per semester with the exception of research and statistics (3 weekends). A majority of the courses are co-taught by two leading professors in the Education Leadership, Management and Policy department and, in most cases, will include independent work between weekends in a format designed by the professors.
