Leadership in Schooling Ed.D. STEM Education
This option is designed for STEM (science, math, engineering) educators who also wish to move into leadership roles. The degree will prepare candidates with skills both as a researcher and as an instructional leader of PK-12 programs. Students who enter this doctoral program will recognize that our emphasis on research and its application to practice will assist them in forming and investigating questions that are of personal, community, national, and even international interest. The strong focus on teacher quality, teacher performance, and student learning in mathematics, engineering and science makes this a program of high interest to teachers.
UMass Lowell is located in historic mill city of Lowell, Mass., 45-minutes north of Boston, at the intersections of Routes 495, 93 and 3. The birthplace of Jack Kerouac and the Industrial Revolution, Lowell's history echoes all around you. Former mill buildings and cobblestone streets now add charm to a bustling downtown, steps away from the UMass Lowell campus, which boasts a thriving arts scene, a population rich in cultural diversity, and a flair for festivals.
