Ed. D. in Educational Leadership: Higher Education Track
Piscataway Board of Education, Quibbletown Middle School, School Counselor

I decided to pursue my doctorate at Rowan because I was impressed by Rowan’s distinguished reputation. I knew that I would receive a stellar education at an affordable price.

The hybrid design of the program couldn’t be more convenient. I work full time as a school counselor in central NJ, so travelling to the main campus several times a week would have been impossible. My classes at the NJPSA are practically right in my own backyard! The on-line classes are very convenient. I am able to work at my own pace throughout the week. The classes can be intense at times, but knowing that it will be over in 8 weeks helps me to get through it one day at a time.

I was attracted to Rowan’s doctoral cohort model. I was fortunate to enter this program with a colleague and we have taken this journey together, supporting each other all along the way. I knew that I would need an encouraging support system to complete this program and my cohort has been that and more!

The Learning Management System has been very user friendly. Any minor issues I had were resolved very quickly. I have certainly become a better writer as a consequence of this program. I would enthusiastically recommend Rowan’s doctoral program in educational leadership to others. It is convenient for working professionals, rigorous without being intimidating, and it offers a well-rounded, robust curriculum. The professors are knowledgeable and leaders in the field of education.
