Welcome to the Department of Leadership and Developmental Sciences

Deborah Hunter, Interim ChairWelcome to the webpage for the Department of Leadership and Developmental Sciences within the College of Education and Social Services. As you explore the link to the academic programs within IPS, you will find an array of provocative courses of study leading to undergraduate, master’s and doctoral degrees, each designed to prepare graduates committed to Making a Difference in our schools and society.

The undergraduate program in Human Development fosters understanding of complex patterns of individual growth. The five master’s degree programs offered within the department are in Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration, Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, Foundations of Education, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Counseling, with tracks in both school counseling and mental health counseling. The doctoral program in Educational Leadership and Policy Studies leads to the Ed.D. degree. In addition to inviting you to explore our academic programs, I also invite you to learn about our renown faculty, each of whom is a highly accomplished scholar and engaging teacher dedicated to Making a Difference. Won’t you join us in this important work?
