Ed.D in Educational Leadership California State University Northridge



Course info


The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) program is designed for those individuals who have already demonstrated leadership ability in diverse educational settings. The program will admit candidates who meet the academic requirements for the Ed.D. degree program and who possess personal qualities and professional experiences that suggest a strong potential for success as doctoral candidates and as educational leaders. Normally, the P12 leadership candidate will already hold an administrative services credential. Meeting the minimum requirements qualifies an individual for consideration, but does not guarantee admission to the program. Admission will be granted annually on a competitive basis.

Ed.D. graduates will have the knowledge, skills and dispositions to lead profound change in teaching and learning in P-14 institutions by:

  • Planning systemic reform and managing the change process in collaboration with fellow educators and other stakeholders, based on a shared vision of learning.
  • Guiding and supporting staff in nurturing a school, district or community college culture and program conducive to the effective instruction of all students and to the professional growth of all employees.
  • Using data and technology effectively to assess student achievement, evaluate staff and programs, and plan and implement accountability systems.
  • Becoming critical consumers of educational research and producers of action research who apply the lessons of research to student, school/district or community college improvement.
  • Promoting culturally proficient policies and practices that recognize and value difference and ensure equity.
  • Managing fiscal, physical and human resources to ensure effective and safe learning and working environments.
