For over 140 years, Morgan State University (MSU) has served the community with distinction while meeting the educational needs of an increasingly diverse society. Its designation as Maryland's Public Urban University assures that Morgan will continue to play a prominent role in Maryland's education future.
At the Laurel College Center, MSU offers the Doctorate in Community College Leadership.
The Community College Leadership Doctoral Program (CCLDP) is designed for working professionals who are committed to attaining a doctorate degree. The CCLDP integrates theory and practice, as well as curricula and learning opportunities for prospective community college leaders. Students will earn a Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) degree.
Courses are offered year-round. Each course meets Friday evening and all day Saturday for five weeks. Students attend classes for the first two years, and then work on their dissertations. Students can complete the program in three years if the program is followed as designed.
Students who start the program at the same time form a “cohort” and progress together through the program. Students work collaboratively to research trends and issues and solve problems relating to the challenges of community college leadership.
