Return to USC Rossier School of Education Return to: USC Rossier School of Education

The Education Doctorate in Organizational Change and Leadership is a three-year degree program that prepares current and future leaders to create conditions that foster continuous improvement in themselves and their organizations. It emphasizes how learning occurs informally and formally in workplaces and serves as a mechanism for change and innovation in organizations and systems. Arranged by four topical streams – problem solving, leadership, dispositions of leaders and reflection – the program seeks to attract a diverse student body of current and emerging leaders who are interested in fostering learning that leads to systemic improvement in their workplaces. The primary emphasis will be on those individuals who currently hold or are seeking leadership positions within colleges/universities, traditional and non-traditional K-12 environments, chief learning officers and their related human resources staff, non-profits and governmental organizations. The degree is not linked to the credentials typically needed to become an administrator in a K-12 environment, including becoming a principal or superintendent. The degree requires a minimum of 60 units. Students with a prior master's may enter with Advanced Standing, reducing their units to 43. It is delivered only online.
