OXFORD — A new doctoral program at the University of Mississippi is designed for working principals, superintendents and district-level administrators.
The School of Education’s doctor of education degree in K-12 leadership will combine online coursework and traditional seminars on weekends.
Doug Davis, director of the program, says in a news release that the degree requires six semesters of part-time study over three years. Davis says a final dissertation will allow doctoral students to align research with the institutional goals of their schools.
Applicants must have earned an advanced degree in educational leadership with a graduate grade-point average of at least 3.5. They must possess a competitive score on the Graduate Record Exam, a school administrator’s license and full-time employment in a school or district leadership position.
