Comparative and International Education Leadership Specialization

CONCENTRATION WITHIN THE ED.D. PROGRAM IN EDUCATIONAL ADMINISTRATION DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATIONAL STUDIES

 

The Educational Administration Program

A key element and uniqueness of Educational Administration (EDAD) study at Ohio University is its explicit focus on context (e.g., rural, urban, teacher-leaders, organizational leadership. The program has a rich history of developing specializations and programs that are related to educational leadership in different contexts. For example, EDAD has offered separate rural-focused and urban focused doctoral programs and has been involved with the delivery of cohort programs for rural principal preparation, superintendent preparation, teacher leadership, and most recently, organizational leadership. Further, they offer both masters and doctoral programs in traditional (non-cohort) delivery models that can be adapted to meet students' individual needs.

Comparative and International Educational Leadership Specialization

 

Objective
The doctoral specialization in CIEL is designed to relate a firm grounding in the theories and methods of international and comparative education for the analysis of education's role in the processes of economic growth, political development, and social change. The specialization will include coverage of (a) educational policy issues in a global context, (b) educational planning from a comparative perspective, (c) the dynamic relationships between school and community, equity and education, and (d) the political economy of educational development. Students are expected to achieve substantial research competence to enable them to carry out large-scale database research, qualitative/action research, quantitative research, and/or mixed method research and evaluation. Candidates for the doctoral degree in CIEL must exhibit high research competence, including the ability to identify, conceptualize, and execute a significant research project that clearly adds to the body of knowledge in the field. Students will also be required to undertake both practical- and research-oriented professional internships.
