UHCL Pearland offers information sessions for new doctoral program
UHCL, 2018, doctoral program
Friday, March 02, 2018

HOUSTON — University of Houston-Clear Lake Pearland Campus is offering information sessions for those interested in advancing their career by obtaining a Doctor of Education in Educational Leadership. Sessions will be held on March 8 and April 5 in room 111 from 4:30-6:30 p.m.

As part of the newly approved cohort model, students can specialize in curriculum and instruction, special populations, higher education, or superintendent effective in fall 2018.

“We are hoping to promote this new program to teachers and administrators in the Pearland area to come to UHCL Pearland Campus to take classes,” said Erica Chance, coordinator of enrollment management at UH-Clear Lake Pearland Campus. “The first 20 students who are accepted into the program will receive a $1,000 discount scholarship on their tuition.”

Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership Antonio Corrales is the new program director at the Pearland Campus and the UHCL campus, as well as a graduate of UHCL’s educational leadership doctoral program. “Most of the doctoral classes are a hybrid between online and face-to-face,” Corrales said. “The rationale behind our approach is that we truly believe in the networking opportunities that meeting new people may bring. Students will be attending classes with current assistant superintendents, central office administrators, and higher education administrators.”

Corrales added that most professors are highly connected and constantly helping schools improve. “I’m a vivid example of this reality,” he said. “I found jobs while doing my master’s and doctoral programs at UHCL. Because the program is configured in a cohort model, it allows students to have greater support from their peers. At the same time, the number of students in the cohorts is no more than 20, which makes it easier for professors to provide more personalized attention.”

Students enrolled in this program can anticipate graduation within just three years. “I hear stories from students spending five to seven years to complete their programs because lack of support. That doesn’t happen here at UHCL and I think it is one of our biggest strengths,” Corrales said.
