The purpose of the Doctoral Program in Educational Leadership is to enhance the talents and skills of individuals who plan to devote their lives to the implementation of educational practices informed by research. Offered by California State University, Fresno, the Ed.D. program provides students with a broad view of educational problems and a strong background in social science theory. In addition, the program prepares students to conduct and interpret inquiries on which sound educational policy and practice can be anchored.
Students in the program benefit from the teaching and research expertise of established scholars and practitioners. The Ed.D. program is interdisciplinary drawing from faculty from a number of academic disciplines and expert practitioners from P-12 school districts, community colleges, and universities.
All courses are taught on the Fresno State campus during the late afternoons, evenings, and/or weekends to accommodate full-time working professionals.
