Dissertation Projects

Students in CSU Ed.D. Programs in Educational Leadership prepare a rigorous research-based dissertation. This section includes examples of the structure and topics of study typical of Ed.D. dissertation research in these programs. The CSU Ed.D. programs are focused on advancing educational reforms that result in improved student achievement, and dissertations generally relate to these issues.

Students at CSULB prepare an electronic assessment portfolio. It allows for feedback from faculty and community members on their work in the program and is a key tool for interaction regarding dissertations.
