The Department of Leadership and Higher Education is made up of faculty members who work in the areas of leadership, educational administration, and policy. The department houses three graduate programs including; our Ed.D. program in Leadership for Educational Justice and two Master of Arts programs in Educational Administration and Higher Education. The department is committed to creating exceptional learning experiences for graduate students in small, personal, educational settings.
Each program is based on a foundation of four common graduate courses. These "core courses" provide the basic knowledge and skills to perform graduate level research, assessment, evaluation and writing; curriculum and program development; and personal and professional reflection, as well as pluralism. In addition to these core courses, each program has requirements specific to its discipline and tailored to meet student needs and interests.
