Volume 53, Number 24 March 6, 2006
The education doctorate is the first doctorate that CSU campuses will be able to offer independently since the system was formed almost half a century ago.
The program will feature an interdisciplinary emphasis that draws upon the strengths of multiple departments and colleges within SFSU. Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs John Gemello is forming an interdisciplinary design group of faculty and community members that will begin outlining curriculum for the program.
The College of Education already offers a joint doctoral program in educational leadership that focuses on urban K-12 administration (with University of California, Berkeley; CSU East Bay; and San Jose State University). The new degree will have a broader focus and will prepare educational leaders for K-12, community college and other educational settings.
