The Educational Leadership, Research and Technology Department offers a number of graduate degrees focused on preparing leaders and researchers for a variety of public and private organizations. A primary focus of all degrees is to produce a diverse academic and professional community of ethically engaged and intellectually active scholars and scholar-practitioners.

Within the Educational Leadership area, three graduate degrees and one certificate are offered. The Masters of Arts in Educational Leadership prepares students for entry and mid-level leadership positions in K-12 and higher education settings via four concentrations: (1) K-12 School Principal Leadership; (2); K-12 Curriculum and Instruction Leadership; (3) Organizational Analysis Leadership; and (4) Higher Education and Student Affairs Leadership. The Education Specialist in Educational Leadership focuses on preparation for central office K-12 leadership positions, while the Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership is targeted toward top leadership positions within the areas of K-12, Higher Education, Career Technical Education, or other environments engaged in education or adult learning. The Certificate in Higher Education and Student Affairs is designed to enhance the work or current professionals in student affairs or related positions.

Within the Evaluation, Measurement, and Research area, two graduate degrees are offered. Graduates from the Master of Arts in Evaluation, Measurement, and Research are qualified to serve in a staff position in evaluation, testing, or research units in school or non-school settings, or in local, state, or federal government agencies. Those receiving the Doctor of Philosophy in Evaluation, Measurement, and Research are prepared to serve as leaders in such organizations, and/or to obtain faculty positions within evaluation, measurement, and research programs at institutions of higher education.

Within the Educational Technology area, an advanced certificate program is offered, as well as one graduate degree. Both the Certificate Program in Educational Technology and the Master of Arts in Educational Technology prepare students to serve as technology leaders within various educational organizations.
