Program Description

The Ed.S. program provides advanced education for practicing P-12 school administrators who aspire to become superintendents or district-level leaders. The Ed.S. curriculum forms the foundation of coursework for the Education Doctorate (Ed.D.); however, post-master's students who seek the Ed.D. as their terminal degree should apply directly to the Ed.D. program.
