The Department of Educational Administration & Policy Studies is changing its name! We will soon be the Department of Educational Policy & Leadership. In the coming weeks and months, we will be working through this transition on multiple levels from rebranding our website to renaming our degree programs. For now, students will still apply to EAPS and register for courses that use the EAPS course code. As these details change, we will be sure to make you aware. Be sure to check back here and on social media for more updates.
As a department we remain dedicated to enhancing the understanding and practice of educational leadership and policy at all levels of the education system, cradle-to-career. We advance this mission through our programs of teaching, research, and engagement with practitioners and scholars in the field. We offer doctoral, master’s and advanced graduate certificates in higher education leadership, educational policy, and school leadership. All programs adopt a global perspective, focusing on how international systems and policies support academic excellence.
