George Fox University program emphasizes moral leadership and problem-solving skills for teachers and administrators

Teachers and administrators seeking to further their education this summer have until March 15 to apply for George Fox University’s doctor of education program.

George Fox offers the program, designed to prepare educators to be leaders in their chosen specialties, at its Newberg, Ore., location. The program offers flexibility for adult students, allowing them to earn their doctorate while still working.

The doctor of education (EdD) curriculum emphasizes moral leadership and provides reasoned solutions to problems encountered in institutional and community settings. Classes focus on ethical, legal, social, political and historical perspectives on educational questions. The doctoral program also equips students to use qualitative and quantitative research tools to increase their understanding of the problems encountered in educational organizations.

The 63-credit-hour program offers modular, online and intensive summer courses that allow students to complete course work in three or four academic years. Designed to maximize accessibility for full-time educators, the professionally oriented program is offered in a cohort model that begins each July.

Fall and spring semester course work is offered in an online format, while a three-week face-to-face session (for the first three years of the program) is offered on the university’s Newberg, Ore., campus in July.

The program incorporates five elements: moral leadership, specialized interest, depth of knowledge, professional development and problem solving. The 40-semester-hour moral leadership core curriculum emphasizes leaders as those who seek just, effective, and reasoned solutions to problems. This curriculum provides a comprehensive framework from ethical, legal, social, political and historical perspectives applied to teaching, leading and learning within a Christian worldview.
