For the PhD in Educational Leadership and Policy the learning outcomes are:
Students will develop expertise in theory and research related to issues of educational leadership, organizations and policy.
Students will develop expertise in an allied field (i.e., a field informs and is related to their topic/discipline of interest) by successfully completing the specified number of credit hours required by the Allied Field components found in the PhD program of study.
Students will gain an understanding of the culture and expectations associated with the role of research professor and/or policy analyst through consistent and successful participation in the socializing experiences provided by the Department as articulated in its PhD.
