Specializations - School Administration


Fred Hampton PhD

The School Administration specialization permits doctoral candidates with previous study in administration to update and deepen their professional preparation in the theory, research and practice of management and leadership for educational, government, human resource development, and social service settings. Each student's program is individually designed, subject to approval by his/her advisor, so as to accommodate the student's previous study and his/her career goals, while building on the Urban Education core.
Students desiring to pursue career goals in school administration must have a Master’s degree in elementary or secondary administration or the equivalent.
