Ph.D. in Education - Community College Leadership

Walden University



Walden University's online Ph.D. in Education - Community College Leadership degree has been created for those individuals who are looking for an online method of developing the skills that are needed for a leadership position within a community college setting.

During the course of this online phd in education program, students will work with experts in the field of leadership to develop the myriad of skills and the knowledge that is needed for obtaining a leadership position within the growing community college industry.

With community colleges growing at an extraordinary rate and an estimated 50 percent of community college presidents-and an even higher percentage of senior administrators retiring over the next few years, there is a growing demand for individuals who are able to meet the challenges of this rapidly growing field of education.

This fully online community college leadership degree program is offered through The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership, and is a customized learning experience with a foundation in social and behavioral sciences.

This online leadership degree program has been designed to focus on:

  • How adults learn most effectively
  • Tools and strategies to promote learning
  • Effective development, organization and leadership
  • Integration of theoretical knowledge
  • Using inquiry strategies aimed at assessing the need for change
  • How educational systems and policies can create focused learning opportunities.

Upon completion of this online research-based community college leadership program, individuals will have the knowledge that is needed for organizing program components for groups of community college administrators and faculty members.

All applicants must have a master's degree from an accredited institution.
