Doctorate in Educational Leadership Program
Thank you for your interest in our doctoral program in educational leadership (Ed.D.) at Samford University. We are pleased to provide the following information regarding the application process:
The doctoral program is designed for students interested in leadership issues, as applied to educational institutions. An educational specialist (Ed.S.) degree from an accredited institution is required for admission along with other criteria designed to select those students who provide evidence of previous academic success, exhibit leadership skills, have excellent teaching and/or administrative abilities, and show creative energy for solving educational problems.
Admission to the program will be competitive and the timing of admission (if all criteria is met) will be based on cohorts previously formed but not yet started. Decisions will be based on advice from the cohort mentor team and the candidate's ability to meet admission criteria. We appreciate your interest in the program and look forward to receiving your application.
