The doctoral program in Educational Leadership provides the highest professional degree available to students who are leaders in educational institutions.
Our executive-style doctoral program is designed to follow a cohort model in which graduate students typically begin the program as a group and complete the program together. Doctoral students attend core classes face-to-face only one evening per week at the SHSU Woodlands Center.
The SHSU doctoral degree in Educational Leadership prepares graduates to be scholar-practitioners and inquiry-driven leaders. Upon doctoral degree completion, most of our graduates are promoted to highly responsible leadership positions in colleges, universities, districts, schools, businesses, and public and community organizations. Some graduates decide to enter academia as faculty members.
