The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) with an Emphasis in Leadership in Teaching and Learning 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 need for outstanding administrative leaders in P-12 schools continues at an increasing rate, and MBU prepares students to meet this need in ways that consider the busy schedule of the working professional.
This advanced degree builds on an earned Specialist Degree or its equivalent, providing students the opportunity to incorporate their teaching and learning experience, preparing them for leadership positions in the field of education. 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.
