What will I study?

Concordia’s doctoral program focuses on developing reflective practitioners and transformative leaders who have a willingness to recognize need and confront it with reason, who are well-grounded with ethical perspectives, and who have the willingness to think and act critically. In this specific concentration which includes an emphasis on higher education administration and higher education instruction, you’ll also learn:

  • Higher education history and how it relates to the critical issues facing academia today

  • The ability to carefully evaluate research findings to make evidence-based strategic decisions

  • The knowledge, attitude, skills, and values necessary for facilitating organizational improvement in schools and colleges

  • How reframe your world-view to move away from knowledge transmission towards transformational learning

Our innovative, three-phase program can be completed in just three years.
