Academic institutions around the country need people who can guide and lead them in positive new directions. With a Doctorate in Leadership from University of the Cumberlands, you can prepare to become one of these leaders and take today's institutions into the future.
During this online doctoral program in educational leadership, you will participate in a comprehensive study of effective leadership, teaching and administrative methods. You will also take an in-depth look at the politics involved in the educational decision-making process, program planning and assessment strategies.
UC's online Ph.D. in Leadership includes curriculum options that will allow you to become an advanced practitioner with community organizations, higher education institutions and K-12 schools. Program course work for our Ph.D. programs in Kentucky emphasizes leadership in the collegiate levels of Business, Criminal Justice, Education, English, Health Sciences, History, Information Security Systems, Math, Psychology, Religion, and Student Personnel.
For those educators wishing to obtain a Kentucky Rank 1 certification with the Doctorate in Leadership, this requires additional coursework within the School of Education. A Ph.D. in education or Ed.D. alone does not provide the Kentucky Rank 1 certification without an accompanying Planned Program from the School of Education identifying the program courses required for Rank 1. Our knowledgeable advisors are here to help you enroll in the classes you will need for both your Ph.D. in Leadership and the Kentucky Rank 1 certification.
