Global Field Experience

During the second summer session of our 3-year Ed.D. Leadership program, our doctoral students partake in a global experience including a two-week educational and cultural experience outside of the United States. Watch the documentary video above to learn more about the recent global field experience in Costa Rica.

This experience - Education and leadership in a global context - extends from our course Education and Leadership in Global Context: Globalization & Narrative Ethics, which provides global perspectives on education and leadership in contemporary society with emphasis on social, political, and economic factors that affect access and equity and the role of leadership.

In previous years, our cohorts of doctoral students have been able to travel to locations such as Costa Rica and Finland to gain a comparative perspective between the educational systems, policies, and practices in those countries and the educational system, policies, and practices in the United States.

The global field experience is an integral part of our Ed.D. Leadership Program and so it is a requirement for all doctoral students to participate in.  The anticipated cost is $3000.
