A Professional Doctorate in Educational Leadership: Saint Louis University's Ed.D. Program
Everson, Susan Toft
Peabody Journal of Education, v84 n1 p86-99 Jan 2009
This article presents the case of a professional doctorate program in educational leadership at Saint Louis University (SLU). This Ed.D. program was designed to prepare students for executive leadership positions in school districts, distinguishing it from SLU's Ph.D. program that prepares students for research or academic positions. This article describes the program's background and theoretical foundation as well as its design and components. Concluding remarks focus on lessons learned during the program's development and ideas regarding future work. (Contains 1 table.)
