Welcome to the Ed.D. Program at California State University, Sacramento!

The Doctorate in Educational Leadership prepares students for leadership positions in education and policy at the community, school, district, state, and national levels. Our department believes that the successful professional is one who sees connections between communities and cultures. Education is an instrument for change and the means for a better quality of life for people throughout the world.

Our three-year program is designed for working professionals and seeks to produce exemplary educational leaders for schools, community colleges, and related educational areas. A partnership between College of Education and the College of Social Sciences and Interdisciplinary Studies, 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.

There is no time like the present to transform your new future. Come and join us in Sacramento for your doctoral journey!
