EMU/GVSU Ph.D. Program in Educational Leadership

Grand Valley State University and Eastern Michigan University jointly bring to you the cooperative Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Educational Leadership program. This program is designed to develop leaders to demonstrate reflective thought and scholarship within the context of a culturally diverse society. Practicing administrators will find that the program is designed to support the application of educational leadership theory to meet the challenges of practice in a changing environment; that the emphasis is on applied research and immediate application of that research; and that the focus is on gaining insight and skills for initiating improvement within educational organizations. Courses are available in compressed weekend formats at the GVSU Grand Rapids Pew Campus. The revised cohort program will be offered in September, 2016.

Students graduating from the GVSU specialist degree will be able to use all of the coursework completed on the GVSU specialist degree toward the cooperative doctoral program.
