Event description


Are you ready to make a difference in students' lives? Have you been thinking about getting an Ed.D.?

Pursuing a doctorate is a worthy goal – one that can open up a world of opportunities for you. With an Ed.D., you are prepared to become a superintendent in a school district, a university professor, a corporate executive or policymaker.

What's the difference between an Ed.D. and a Ph.D.?

A Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) is a terminal degree, as is a Ph.D. earned by Doctors of Philosophy. The difference is that Ph.D.s focus on developing new research, whereas Ed.D.s are educational leaders who apply research to their organizational, leadership and educational issues.

The Ed.D. program was created to address the need for well-prepared administrators to lead California’s public schools and community colleges. It is a unique program that links theory, research and practice that is directly relevant to regional needs.

Why choose Sacramento State for your Ed.D.?

  • Face-to-face interaction with students and faculty
  • Every-other-weekend classes
  • Renowned faculty who want you to succeed
  • Supportive cohort-based learning
  • Accelerated 3-year program

Learn more about the Sacramento State Ed.D. program.

The Doctorate in Educational Leadership at Sacramento State is an executive-style program designed for working professionals. Face-to-face classes, led by renowned faculty, are held every other weekend.

The program is offered by the College of Education’s Educational Leadership and Policy Studies Department, in partnership with the Social Sciences & Interdisciplinary Studies’ Department of Public Policy and Administration. The program takes advantage of its location in California's capital by utilizing the expertise of education policymakers and analysts, as well as executive leaders in K-12 and the community colleges.

For the first seven cohorts of the Sacramento State Ed.D. program, an average of 28 percent received a promotion while still in the program, and 79 percent expected to receive a promotion after graduation. See the 6 best reasons to choose Sacramento State for your doctorate.
