The EdD program at UM-Flint prepares you to become a confident, inspiring, and effective administrator in K-12 or higher education. Discover how our well-rounded program will help you achieve your greatest goals.
UM-Flint’s Doctor of Education program is specifically designed for K-12 educators looking to build upon their background and skills, as well as for those interested in administration roles in higher education. The program also prepares administrators at the building level who are interested in a central office position in a variety of areas featuring, but not limited to, Human Relations, Finance, Curriculum, or as Superintendents. Furthermore, graduates in the program can possibly pursue a career in higher education as a professor or administrator.
The program’s flexible, part-time, online/weekend format is designed to accommodate the busy schedules of working professionals and facilitate their success in the program. The EdD blends online coursework with an on-campus* class held one Saturday per month, and is well-paced for candidates to achieve completion in as little as three years.
