The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) program is a practical degree program designed to meet the needs of professional administrators and leaders in curriculum and instruction at the PK-Grade 12 district level. The program stresses the development of leadership in teaching and learning strategies that assist schools in promoting a culture of learning and inquiry. The emphasis on leadership in teaching and learning in this program places achievement in the broader context of scholarship and lifelong learning.
The added dimension of the educational doctorate is to build a “culture of applied research” which will continue to serve the PK-Grade 12 and higher educational community in the St. Louis metropolitan area. The emphasis will be on district leaders as change agents who are responsible for creating climates that help administrators and teachers make changes in the context of teaching and learning.
