Move to the top ranks in education

Earning a doctorate in Educational Leadership through UNT at Frisco will give you a competitive edge as you pursue your degree in a region that is home to some of the state's fastest-growing school districts.

You can choose between two programs, the Ed.D. or the Ph.D. in Educational Leadership, both of which are designed to help working education professionals move to the top ranks as a superintendent or school or district administrator, or to move into academia and research.

Both degree options will help you master the data, trends and theories shaping how students learn, making you a better decision maker and thought leader shaping students' education. You'll learn how to lead learning organizations, engage ethically with the community, advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion, and develop theory to practice solutions.

Your career options include:

  • Superintendent
  • District or school administrator
  • University professor
  • Policy analyst
