The committee recommends that offering a relevant doctoral program in leadership studies with several options for specializations, as outlined on the next page, is potentially feasible and advantageous for CBU. In addition, a doctorate in leadership studies affords CBU additional opportunities to expand its influence across the globe by offering a truly multidisciplinary terminal degree with an online component to various constituents and equipping such constituents with requisite knowledge and skills to creatively lead complex environments in a global economy.
The committee recommends that a 63 semester unit research doctoral degree in leadership studies be implemented in a time frame consistent with WASC requirements and at the direction of the President. Candidates would have the option to enroll in the program as Ed.D. students or Ph.D. students. While candidates in both degree programs would take the same courses, the in class assignments and research requirements would be differentiated consistent with the type of doctoral degree program the candidate is enrolled, with Ed.D. candidates taking on a more applied research approach while the Ph.D. candidates would focus on what is typically referred to as pure research.
There are several rationales for offering a doctoral degree program in leadership studies as outlined on the next page which is cross-listed as an Ed.D. and Ph.D.
*The following proposal is a synthesis of two years of evaluating doctoral programs at various IHEs, participating in scholarly seminars on doctoral education, soliciting feedback from various constituents and advisory committees, and reading various reports on doctoral education identified in the attached reference page.
In addition to a description of the proposed program, reference list and pro-forma budget, the following pages provide a summary of the key milestones and documents supporting this recommendation, a list of comparable degree programs from select universities and their respective tuitions, and possible timelines for WASC accreditation.
