dallas-b-u-headerThe Ed.D. in Educational Leadership program at DBU began in 2006 and recently unveiled a significant redesign of its 60-hour doctoral program that will now provide students the ability to complete their doctorate in less than three years. The Ed.D. emphasizes a practical approach to leadership development, incorporating both theory and research, while accentuating the servant leadership model. The Christ-centered program is designed to produce leaders with the practical knowledge, training, and unique skills necessary to develop leaders in education and ministry contexts.

Upon completion, students are prepared to serve as servant leaders for educational, ministry, community, and professional organizations. The program is offered by an experienced faculty who practice servant leadership and teach from a Christian worldview.

The Ed.D. consists of 20 hours of core studies in educational leadership, 20 hours of studies in a selected cognate area, 8 hours of research studies, and 12 hours in dissertation research and writing (totaling 60 hours). Students have the option of choosing from three concentration areas of study: Higher Education, Ministry Leadership, and General Leadership. The program is structured to be completed in 34 months.
