In ODU's online educational leadership program, we prepare professionals to provide leadership in a wide variety of educational settings.
Our program has a strong social justice core. Our graduates are ready to produce meaningful change in educational organizations. You will learn how to use research, theory, and your own professional expertise to advance organizational change in your current workplace.
This accelerated, executive style doctoral program is cohort based. You will complete courses throughout the program with the same group of peers. A cohort model allows our students to build an intensive professional learning community as they discuss and research educational problems of practice and policy.
The cohort model also means that your course schedule is set from the beginning of the program, making it easier for professionals working full time to plan ahead.
ODU's Darden College of Education and Professional Development is a UCEA Associate Member, www.ucea.org. Our faculty have received prestigious awards and grants, such as Dr. Karen Sanzo receiving the UCEA Master Professor award and Dr. Rachel White receiving a Spencer Foundation grant.
When you graduate, you will earn a PhD in Education with a concentration in Educational Leadership.
