Educational Leadership at SIUE
SIUE's School of Education, Health and Human Behavior offers the educational leadership program. The Department of Educational Leadership at SIUE offers two programs of study leading to the education doctorate degree (EdD) in educational leadership: the district-level/superintendent leadership option and the general school leadership option. The General School Leadership option is designed for practicing P-12 school administrators who want to pursue careers as superintendents or school district leaders. Through doctoral study, they develop expertise in using research to make system-wide changes that benefit all students within the school district.
Students in the general school leadership option complete a general program of study during the first two years of the program and do not pursue the superintendent endorsement. After completion of the first two years, students in the general school leadership option and students in the district-level leadership option complete one year of advanced study of school law, policies and policy-making and research. Students are then required to complete a research-based capstone project. The advanced coursework and the research capstone project typically requires two years to complete.
