Putting your educational administration degree to work

Students who complete KU’s doctorate degree in Educational Administration (including the field experience) will have achieved both a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in educational administration and also will have satisfied the requirements for district-level administrative licensure endorsement. It’s a two-for-one graduate program for aspiring district leaders.

Recent graduates have been selected to participate in district leadership academies; they have presented at national conferences on leadership; and have been selected for educational leadership positions in other countries.

Graduate students who aspire to pursue careers in educational leadership or school administration with their Ed.D. in Educational Administration are likely to accept positions with titles similar to the following:

  • Superintendent
  • Associate Superintendent
  • Assistant Superintendent
  • Director-level Administrator

It’s not just for superintendents. Become a better prepared building-level leader.

If district-level administration is not the right path for you, we hope you understand that this doctorate degree can still benefit your career as an administrator. Many large school district leaders prefer to hire building-level leaders who have earned a doctoral degree. Graduate students who aspire to become a better leader within their building benefit from the theory, research, and applicable knowledge gained with this doctorate degree:

  • Principal
  • Associate Principal
  • Assistant Principal
  • Athletics Director

Begin the application process today and take that next step in your career as an administrator.
