The philosophy of the program is based on principles that reflect efforts to enlighten educators on skills, concepts, and ideas that are informed by research and designed to improve academic achievement of children, adolescents, and adult learners. The course design and pedagogical methods emphasize an equal distribution of scholarship, theory, and practice in leadership and pedagogy. Applied practice underscores the benefit of gaining experience in the work environment by applying theory to practice through research or policy, project, and/or product development. Also, students are allowed to apply doctoral units for the purpose of professional certification requirements.
