We're here to help you!

The doctoral program in K-12 Educational Administration at Michigan State University enrolls professional educators and others interested in the intersections of leadership, school organizations, research and policy. Its mission is to improve leadership practice and to expand knowledge for educational leadership development and the improvement of school organizations and systems. The program emphasizes disciplined inquiry, conceptual analysis, connections between theory and practice and the development of research and scholarship.

Program Highlights



NATIONAL REPUTATION


Michigan State University is ranked #5 in the nation for education administration (U.S. News & World Report, 2020).


INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION


Students receive one-on-one guidance around their choice of research and goals.


FUNDING


Some full-time students are fully funded for three or more years.

The support I’ve had to share my work with other scholars really distinguishes MSU. The comprehensive package you get is better than anywhere else.
