ABINGDON - Virginia Tech will begin a doctoral program in educational leadership (Ed.D.) and an educational specialist (Ed.S.) and master of arts (M.A.) in educational leadership and policy studies in August at the Virginia Tech Southwest Center located at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center in Abingdon.
The deadline for applications for all of these programs is May 1.
The doctoral program is designed for educators who are currently employed in an administrative position. The education specialist is for people who already have a master's and wish to add the educational leadership and policy studies endorsement to their credentials.
The master's program is designed for teachers, counselors and other educators who want to take leadership roles in schools and division offices.
The programs are approved by the Virginia Board of Education, accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and nationally recognized by the Educational Leadership Constituent Council for meeting the standards of the National Policy Board for Educational Administration, a partnership of national professional organizations for principals, supervisors, curriculum specialists, superintendents, school business officials, colleges of teacher education, and professors of educational leadership.
