  • Vanderbilt University is pleased to announce the launch of a new Early Childhood Leadership doctoral program (Ed.D.). Based in the Teaching and Learning Department, this interdisciplinary program includes eminent faculty from the department of Special Education and the Vanderbilt Medical School. This innovative three-year doctoral program enables early childhood professionals to continue working in their current positions as they gain greater understanding of leadership and administration, early childhood systems, development and learning, applied inquiry, and program design and evaluation. Students enroll as a cohort, take all courses as a group, and are able to complete the program in three years of year-round study if they have 30 hours of master's level courses that can be applied to their degree. Courses are taken at Vanderbilt University in three intensive sessions each semester. Students complete a Capstone project related to real world problems as a culminating experience rather than a dissertation. This program will begin in June 2008. Learn more here.
