The Joint Ed.D. in Educational Leadership is offered through a partnership of California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) and University of California, San Diego (UCSD). It is designed as a professional degree for P-12 school and postsecondary leaders who will develop advanced leadership and research skills related to the advancement of the P-12 educational community. Fifteen to twenty new graduate students will be admitted each year. The program is designed for the working professional educator who will attend classes on weeknights and weekends. The program is designed to be completed in 36 months.

This program views the students' workplace as a powerful laboratory for their own study. Students will conduct research on professional practice within their own institutions, addressing specific local problems that have national implications for teaching and learning, school reform, and professional development. Students completing the program will receive a joint degree from UCSD and CSUSM.
