Return to: Degree Programs

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree program in Educational Leadership and Administration offers students opportunities to develop the added knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary for leadership roles in a variety of educational settings. Typically, graduates of the doctoral program prepare for positions in three general career areas:

  1. central-office and school-site leadership,
  2. leadership in higher education and other educational settings, and
  3. leadership in policy analysis and evaluation.

This unique program features include emphasis on educational leadership issues in the U.S.-Mexico border with opportunities for research in this cultural and linguistically diverse region, and a cohort program which provides a sense of community and mutual support during students’ doctoral experiences.

Requirements for Admission

Admission to the program is based on a variety of factors, including academic achievement, the probability of success in performing doctoral level work, and perceived fit with the cohort experience. The following requirements are considered:

  1. Letter of intent,
  2. Curriculum vitae/resume,
  3. Three letters of reference that focus on applicant's achievements, leadership ability, and aptitude for graduate study,
  4. Typed, double - spaced statement of personal beliefs regarding educational leadership, which includes short- and long - term career goals and aspirations (maximum 1,500 words),
  5. Transcripts,
  6. Graduate Record Exam (GRE) score,
  7. Completion of a master’s degree, 
  8. Any additional information (publications, papers submitted in graduate courses, etc.) that might enhance the application, and 
  9. Faculty interview. 

Completion of a Master’s Degree: Students entering the doctoral program should have completed a master’s degree in Educational Administration or Leadership, or an equivalent field. For cases in which the degree was not in the field of educational administration or leadership, students can be required to enroll in master’s-level courses and other learning experiences as determined by the program faculty advisor. Courses required to remove deficiencies or meet prerequisites will not count toward meeting doctoral degree credit-hour requirements. These requirements must be met before permission will be granted to enroll in the doctoral core courses.

Selection of Doctoral Students: Applicants who consistently demonstrate potential for success throughout the application process can be accepted to the Ed.D. program. Admission to the program is competitive. The number of applicants commonly exceeds the faculty resources available to provide an appropriate level of academic support for each new and continuing student. As a result, it is often necessary to deny admission to otherwise qualified applicants.

Pre-Admission Course Taking: Students are discouraged from taking courses prior to admission to the program and are cautioned that doing so will not be a factor in doctoral program admission decisions. However, if students wish to take courses, they cannot take core courses or research-methods courses. No more than six (6) semester credit hours of work can be transferred from other universities or from UTEP for credit toward the doctoral degree.

Application Process: The admission application deadline is March 15. The selection of cohort members is completed by April 15. Application materials should be sent to the Graduate School and to the Department of Educational Leadership and Foundations.

Degree Program Requirements

Credit Hour Requirements:

The minimum credit-hour requirement is 60 semester credit hours beyond the master’s degree. Students can be required to take additional courses to address particular specialization interests. Minimum credit hours shall be distributed in the following way:

Doctoral Core Courses21
Specialized Area Courses12
Electives 6
Research Design and Methodology Courses9
Field-Based Learning3
Capstone Course3
Dissertation6
Total Hours60

Doctoral Core (21 credit hours):

The doctoral program core consists of seven courses:

EDAD 6300Intro to Doctoral Program3
EDAD 6301Hist & Phil Foundations-Educat3
EDAD 6304Organizat'l Theory/Development3
EDAD 6306Sem/Decision Making/Prob Solv3
EDAD 6310Eval/Acctability/Policy Analys3
EDAD 6318Soc & Symbolic Borders in Ed3
Total Hours18

These courses are offered as follows: two in the summer session of the year of admission, two courses in the fall and spring semesters respectively, and one in the summer session of the following year. Students are required to take the seven core courses during the first year of academic studies. First-year students cannot take an additional course during a semester in which they drop a core course.

Transfer of Credits:

No more than six (6) semester credit hours of work can be transferred from other universities or from UTEP for credit toward the doctoral degree. Transfer of credit is subject to approval by the Doctoral Program Committee. Transfer courses must be post-master’s, not for a specialist’s degree, and must fit well with the program, as determined by the Committee.

Specialization Area Courses (12 credit hours):

After the completion of the core, students--with guidance and approval from their Faculty Advisor and the Director of the Doctoral Program Committee--will identify a program area of specialization in their doctoral work and select courses related to this area.

Electives (6 credit hours):

Additionally, students select two courses within the department or from other academic units of the university, which will add to their specialization area. Educational Leadership and Foundations courses must be at the level of 6300 or higher. Other UTEP courses must be at the 5300 level or higher. Courses taken to attain prior academic degrees are not accepted as electives.

Research Design and Methodology Courses (9 credit hours):

Students enroll in nine hours of coursework in the areas of quantitative and qualitative research design and methodology

EDRS 6315Qualitative Research Methods I3
EDRS 6318Quantitative Rsrch Methods I3
EDRS 6316Qualitative Resrch Methods II3
EDRS 6319Quantitative Rsrch Methods II3

 These courses help students develop the skills and knowledge needed to carry out effective independent research during the dissertation phase of the doctoral program.

Field-Based Learning (3 credit hours):

Students enrolled in the program are expected to complete three semester credits in field-based learning activities which are designed to provide opportunities for practical application of the theoretical concepts acquired in core and elective courses. Take note that EDAD courses completed as part of an earlier master’s or certification program cannot be transferred into the doctoral program. The two courses available to satisfy this requirement are:

EDAD 6350Internship In Leadership I3
and
EDAD 5389Schl Superintendent Internship3
EDAD 6398Dissertation Research3

Capstone Doctoral Course (3 credit hours):

All doctoral students, prior to developing a formal proposal or beginning work on the dissertation, will be required to take EDAD 6380 Capstone Doctoral Seminar. This culminating course must be taken in the last semester of doctoral coursework and prior to EDAD 6398 Dissertation Research. The Capstone Doctoral Course takes the place of the Qualifying/Comprehensive Examination. The course is aimed at ensuring that students are fully prepared to begin work on the dissertation and are able to demonstrate a range of skills and abilities, including an ability to frame a dissertation research question; undertake a thorough, focused literature review; make a decision regarding the type of research design that makes sense given the question; and define the type of data analyses that make possible the reaching of certain conclusions.

Dissertation:

After successful completion of EDAD 6380 Capstone Doctoral Seminar, students take EDAD 6398 Dissertation Research and EDAD 6399 Dissertation Writing. After successful completion of EDAD 6398 students advance to doctoral candidacy. 

Advising and Assessment of Students

The Doctoral Program Committee is vested with the responsibility of making key decisions regarding the doctoral program and related issues. Among the issues to be decided by the Doctoral Program Committee are assignment of first-year Faculty Mentors and Program Advisors, review of requests to transfer up to six (6) semester hours upon entry into the doctoral program, and approval of dissertation committees. Doctoral faculty support students in three different roles as:

Faculty Mentor:

A Faculty Mentor will be assigned to each doctoral student after admission to the program to provide the student guidance and support during the first year of study.

Program Advisor:

A Program Advisor who will assist each student in preparing and carrying out a doctoral plan of study will be identified during the Fall Semester of the second year. The Program Advisor can be the same person as the Faculty Mentor, but does not need to be.

Dissertation Committee Member:

A student’s dissertation committee will be officially formalized after successful completion of all coursework and of the Capstone Doctoral Seminar. The committee will include at least four faculty members (usually, three members of the Educational Leadership faculty and one from outside the department).

Degree Plans:

A draft of the Preliminary Degree Plan will be prepared by the Faculty Mentor in consultation with the student before the completion of the first year. By the end of the first year of study, a final version of the Preliminary Degree Plan will be prepared and forwarded to the Doctoral Program Committee for review and approval. The Preliminary Degree Plan will then be forwarded to the Graduate School for approval. Once approved, a copy will be sent to the student and the Doctoral Program Committee. Any proposed modification to the approved Preliminary Degree Plan must be approved by the Program Advisor and the Doctoral Program Committee.

Interim Review:

At the end of the second summer of the program all students, irrespective of whether they have completed all core courses, will be reviewed by the faculty members who taught the core courses. This interim review will address issues including progress in the program; course work to date; writing and clarity of conceptual thinking; commitment to the doctoral program; and potential research interests. The review is designed to reveal the doctoral nominee’s academic strengths and weaknesses and the probability of the nominee’s successful completion of the program through the doctoral dissertation.

Capstone Course:

All doctoral students, prior to developing a proposal or beginning work on the dissertation, will be required to take a Capstone Doctoral Seminar which takes the place of the Qualifying or Comprehensive Examination. The Doctoral Program Committee will be responsible for the design of the Capstone Seminar and criteria for evaluating student performance in the course. Course design and evaluation criteria will be reviewed and approved by the full faculty.

Dissertation

Students cannot register for dissertation courses until they have successfully completed the Capstone Doctoral Seminar (EDAD 6380). The dissertation research course (EDAD 6398) must precede the dissertation writing course (EDAD 6399) and the student cannot enroll in these courses simultaneously. After successful completion of EDAD 6398 students advance to doctoral candidacy. A dissertation is required of every candidate. It must address a topic of educational significance, contribute to scholarship, derive from independent investigation in the major area, and be approved by the Dissertation Committee.

Dissertation Committee:

The Doctoral Program Committee, in consultation with the student, will appoint a Dissertation Committee. Committee appointments will take into consideration faculty academic expertise in the student’s specialization area and the Department’s interest in maintaining workload balance among faculty. The Dissertation Committee shall include at least four faculty members (three members of the Educational Leadership faculty and one from outside the department). The Dissertation Committee approves the dissertation proposal, advises the student on the research and writing of the dissertation, and conducts the final dissertation oral defense.

Dissertation Proposal:

Students work with their Dissertation Committee in planning, designing, and implementing independent scholarly research. They enroll in EDAD 6398 Dissertation Research during this period, and develop a dissertation proposal with their Doctoral Dissertation Committee. Students continue to enroll in EDAD 6398 until the proposal is approved by the Dissertation Committee. After successful completion of EDAD 6398 students advance to doctoral candidacy. Dissertation Committee members indicate their approval of the proposal by signing the Dissertation Proposal Defense Form that is filled in the student's file. 

Once the dissertation proposal has been approved, the doctoral candidate will enroll in EDAD 6399 Dissertation Writing until the dissertation is completed.

Dissertation Defense:

A satisfactory final oral defense of the dissertation is required. The Department of Educational Leadership and Foundations will publish the time and place of this examination. College of Education faculty members are encouraged to attend, and the exam is open to all members of the University community and the public. Dissertation Committee members indicate their approval by signing the Dissertation Defense Form that is then submitted to the Graduate School. A majority of the Dissertation Committee members must approve the dissertation. The results of the review are then communicated to the student.

Graduation:

At the beginning of a student’s last semester, she or he must complete a Graduation Application Form, have it signed by the Doctoral Dissertation Committee, and submit this form to the Graduate School along with the appropriate diploma fee. Students are strongly encouraged to visit the Graduate School at the beginning of the semester in order to ensure compliance with all required deadlines. Once all program requirements are met, the candidate will be awarded the degree of Doctor of Education.
