  • Coursework is supplemented by cohort retreats that are designed to improve leadership skills, foster collaboration, and enhance problem solving abilities.
  • Students progress through the program as a cohort.
  • Classes are instructed by ESU faculty and practicing administrators in the field.
  • Students are supported through all coursework and dissertation work.
  • Students may qualify for the Pennsylvania Department of Education Superintendent’s Letter of Eligibility.

For the past 16 years, ESU’s doctoral program has graduated outstanding administrators who continue to make a difference in the lives of the students they serve. As a testimonial, Dr. Dennis Riker, Superintendent of the Nazareth Area School District shared, “ESU’s doctoral program provided me with a tremendous amount of self-confidence and has caused me to look at myself and reflect on ALL situations. When I entered the program I was a new Superintendent and the program provided me with valuable insights and resources that I continue to utilize today.”
