About

The Department of Educational Leadership (EDL) is a diverse and unique community at Miami. We offer Master's degrees in School Leadership, Transformative Education, and Student Affairs in Higher Education. We offer Ph.D. degrees in Student Affairs in Higher Education and in Educational Leadership, and offer an Ed.D. in Educational Leadership as well. We offer licensure programs in the school principalship and superintendency. We collaborate with school districts and Educational Service Centers to provide graduate programs for educators which are based in problems of practice, and in district or regional goals.

EDL also offers an undergraduate major in Education Studies and an array of undergraduate courses and programs. We have a thematic sequence in Critical Youth Studies, a certificate in Outdoor Leadership, and a minor in Community-Based Leadership. EDL offers courses in the Teacher Licensure core curricula, such as EDL 204: Socio-cultural Studies in Education, and EDL 318: Teacher Leadership & School Organization. We partner with an array of campus offices and programs to offer co-curricular courses designed to maximize the potential for student co-curricular learning: courses like EDL 100: Career Development and the College  Student, EDL110: The University and the Student, and EDL 290: The Nature of Group Leadership which help students of any major develop knowledge and experience in particular areas.
