Doctor of Education (Ed.D.)

Welcome to the CCSU Ed.D. webpage.  Our doctoral program in educational leadership serves pre-kindergarten to grade 12 educators, both teacher leaders and administrators, through an innovative program of study that integrates course work in leadership, learning, and research with field studies grounded in authentic inquiry.

Faculty and doctoral candidates in each cohort work together, providing mutual support for their shared responsibility to improve educational opportunities for the children and young people of our state.
