About this course
Ashland University's interdisciplinary Doctorate in Leadership Studies combines theory and practice with individual mentoring and applied research to train a new generation of reflective, ethical and effective leaders in P-12 schools, higher education, government, industry and human service organizations.
High-quality academic content paired with individualized mentoring — both on and off campus, through workplace partners — stand as the hallmarks of Ashland University’s doctoral program in leadership studies. With a Doctorate in leadership studies, you will engage in a rigorous process of research, inquiry and site-specific practice.
Leadership is conceived within the context of organizational renewal, so you’ll focus your development upon the common values among professionals; vision of professional organizations; pursuit of institutional and personal goals; and combination of information and relationships.
