Administration and Supervision (EdD)
Start Semester: Fall
Campus: Lincoln Center or Westchester
Career Path: Advancement in higher education and K-12 careers. An EdD is often required for assistant superintendent and superintendent positions in K-12 and for dean and vice president positions in higher education.
The Doctor of Education in Administration and Supervision is designed to prepare transformative leaders who understand the social, political, economic, and cultural changes that will alter traditional conceptions of American society.
The program is based on the recognition that administration must be an intellectual and moral practice as well as craft.
In keeping with the Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate (CPED) model, the program blends theory and practice to solve contemporary problems in K-12 schools. The sequence of core experiences is related to school leadership, organizational design, educational policy, diversity, critical theory, the change process, ethics, and the history, philosophy, and sociology of education.
The goal of the curriculum is to help administrators construct a new approach to the organization and administration of schools: one that understands the need to prepare today’s youth, in all their diversity, to live and work in a world of ideas and ideals, a world of constant change and the redefinition of community amidst plurality, a world that requires lifelong learning.
