Ph.D. in Education - K-12 Educational Leadership

Offered By: Walden University

Second only to the impending teacher shortage in America is the developing shortage of educational leadership at school, district and state levels. Walden's K-12 specialization offered through The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership provides a much-needed new model for advanced study in the field of educational leadership. A highly flexible, student-centered curriculum is designed to create local, regional, and state educational leaders who can relate to diverse, multi-cultural, K-12 and community-based school populations. Career professionals in education who work, or wish to work, in leadership and policy development at the building, district, regional or state level will find the specialization particularly suited to their needs for advanced study and certification and licensure. Walden University does not directly provide administrative certification or licensure in any state. Students are advised to consult directly with their state certification/licensure authority for further information.
