The UMass Lowell Leadership in Education Ph.D. program emphasizes the generation, critical evaluation and application of knowledge in the field of Leadership PK-Higher Education. This doctoral program is appropriate for professionals pursuing a future career in research universities and other policy and research organizations. Students admitted to this degree may study on a part-time or full-time basis. There is no residency requirement for part-time students. There is a limited number of Teaching and Research Assistantships available for suitably qualified full-time students.
The program provides students with an experience that is unique among Leadership Ph.D. programs offered by other universities in the region.
- Our School of Education (SOE) is large enough to provide access to a diverse range of faculty expertise yet small enough to ensure personalized attention.
- Our regularly scheduled seminars and meetings ensure the development of collaborative networking and professional relationships.
- Lowell’s geographic location allows ready access to a wealth of resources, putting students within easy driving distance of urban, suburban, and rural communities of diverse makeup, as well as state government, and non-university research policy centers.
