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 is coordinated with the Indiana District Level (Superintendent) license and if 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.
