The Department of Special Education, Counseling, and Student Affairs at Kansas State University is pleased to announce the launch of the new Ph.D. program focused on academic advising. The Leadership in Academic Advising doctoral program prepares professionals for roles in leadership, research, and teaching focused on academic advising in higher education. The coursework and related activities emphasize the contributions of diversity, theory, practice, and research to professional advising.
The first cohort will begin in the summer of 2020.
This program is offered as a specialization within the counseling and student development doctoral program and requires a minimum of 90 credit hours post-baccalaureate.
Students will complete the program as a cohort and will take the doctoral courses in a planned sequence of six credit hours per semester (fall, spring and summer). All courses will be offered using K-State Online (Canvas), our course management system. Some synchronous class and cohort sessions will be required via Zoom, our interactive video system. A one-week, on-campus session will be required during each of the first three summers of the program.
