Educational Leadership and Policy Studies
Purdue’s educational leadership and policy studies program prepares people who are committed to teaching and departmental leadership, administrative, or professional positions. Our graduates assume positions as building-level administrators, superintendents, central office administrators, educational leadership researchers, and educational policymakers.
All of our graduate programs are hybrid. The Doctor of Philosophy with a concentration in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies and the Ed. Specialist degrees are coordinated with the Indiana District Level (Superintendent) license and is offered in a cohort format. The Doctor of Philosophy with a concentration in Higher Education is for post-Master’s degree students who are interested in preparing for service and leadership in a broad range of roles in Colleges and Universities. The Building Level (Principal) licensure program is an add-on to a Master’s degree or Ed.S. degree.
Our faculty has diverse backgrounds in P-12 schooling, educational policy, and research.
