Welcome to the EDA/EPS Program!
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION - EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION (EDA)
The Educational Administration Program Area provides Master's Degrees and Educational Specialist (Ed.S.) Certificates relating to P-12 and university-level administration and leadership.
Purpose: This program is designed to assist teachers in improving their competence in leadership roles, formal and informal, in the schools and community. Individuals aspiring to such positions as assistant principals, principals, curriculum directors or coordinators, federal coordinators, directors (special education, industrial-vocational education, counseling and guidence, etc.), assistant superintendents, and superintendents should undertake study at the sixth year and doctoral level.

An approval and certificate program is also available. The Ed.S. serves as a preliminary step toward earning an Ed.D. or a Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies.

- PLAN B: for applicants with a Master’s degree in a non- EDA field;

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION - EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP & POLICY STUDIES (EPS)
Both the Doctor of Education program and the Doctor of Philosophy program in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies require satisfactory completion of the Miller Analogies Test and a departmental written examination. If students have taken the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), those scores may be accepted if taken not more than three years prior to submission of application.
The Doctor of Education program is primarily for practicing educational administrators and as such requires demonstrative leadership experience with adults as a prerequisite for admission.
The Doctor of Philosophy program requires evidence of past research efforts and interests as a prerequisite for admission. Applicants for this degree should be interested in careers which include a research emphasis.
