Georgetown, Del.—Widener University and Sussex Technical School District, a public Career and Technical Education school district in Georgetown, Del., are expanding their recently announced partnership to include the Widener doctoral degree program in K-12 Educational Leadership: School System Leadership beginning this fall.
The program gives individuals who have previously earned a master’s degree the opportunity to transfer up to 24 credits towards the doctoral degree. All courses will be offered either online or through a blended model (online and in a classroom at Sussex Tech). Formal program approval anticipated from Delaware Department of Education in the near future.
“The doctoral program in K-12 Educational Leadership is one of the most highly regarded and recognized programs in the tri-state area,” stated Dr. Brenda Gilio, Acting Dean of the College of Education, Innovation and Continuing Studies. “It offers professionals an opportunity to reach the highest levels of leadership within the public education system.”
