The Ph.D. in Educational Studies with a concentration in Higher Education is intended for experienced college administrators and qualified scholars. Our 60-credit hour program builds upon students’ scholar-practitioner identity, honoring work experience as a critical part of the theory to practice dialogue. The program seeks to enhance students’ understanding of the most current theories of student development, ways to promote equity in higher education, educational research, and organizational and legal frameworks for practice. Graduates of the program develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes necessary for investigating, understanding, and shaping the dynamic relations among students, institutions of higher education, and society.
Graduates of the program will possess the skill required and will be well-prepared for continued success as higher education administrators, researchers, and educators.
