Educational Leadership (Joint EdD) (ED81)

The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and California State University, San Marcos (CSUSM) offers a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Leadership. This cohort-based three-year (including summers) doctor of education degree is designed to enable education leaders to participate in a research-based program while working in an educational setting.

We seek educators who wish to expand their knowledge of discipline-specific pedagogy, research methodology, and education reform in order to lead curricular and pedagogical improvement efforts with pre-service, beginning, and experienced teachers in local schools. Our students represent groups of great depth in diversity and professional experience. Students include primary, secondary and post-secondary educational practitioners. We address a broad range of educational issues specifically concentrating on:

Teaching and Learning
K-12 Leadership/Administration
Higher Education Administration & Student Affairs

The Joint Doctorate in Educational Leadership has three foci. First, we are committed to a program of study that addresses issues of social justice in all aspects of education. Second, we teach and use a strengths and asset-based inquiry approach that enables you to embrace your own strengths and to identify and build on the strengths of others as stepping stones to powerful leadership. Third, we engage you in exploring cutting edge research and practices that will enable you to design and lead educational systems in and for the future.

Education (Ph.D.) (ED82)

The Ph.D. in Education is designed for students with some professional experience in teaching and learning settings as well as in research. Our mission is to teach students to wield the tools of research to change disparities in educational experiences and student outcomes.

As part of the evolution of education research, the field of education will require Ph.D. graduates who are prepared to collaborate with policymakers, educators, families, and communities to transform current education policy and practice. The UCSD Department of Education Studies Ph.D. will provide a fresh approach to training such new researchers. Rather than train traditional faculty members to solely generate knowledge documenting outcomes and processes in education, we will cultivate future faculty and researchers to serve and partner with communities through their research in order to affect educational change in regional, national, and international settings.

With a focus on equity, equality, and justice, the program will train students to engage in research that can address problematic educational settings, practices, and policies. The program will explicitly articulate the links between university faculty, students, education practitioners, community members, policy-makers, and educational stakeholders. In addition to gaining a core foundational knowledge in theory, methods, and research in education, students in the Ph.D. program will have the opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary experiences working across UCSD divisions, departments, and research units.
