The Doctor of Education Degree (Ed.D.) is designed to meet the needs of advanced graduate students who hold or are seeking to assume leadership roles in education and who are dedicated to advancing the profession through quality teaching, research, and service. The curriculum emphasizes school administration in K-12 settings. The program is designed to satisfy the licensing requirements in Indiana for the school superintendency; however, sufficient flexibility exists to design a program to meet the needs of the individual candidate.
