The Educational Leadership Program (ELP) is a cohort based, 36-month doctoral program aimed at working professionals. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are awarded the Ed.D. — the Doctorate of Education. Each cohort is made up of between 25-30 students who work together throughout their tenure at UCLA, taking all the same classes together. Classes are held one night a week (from 6pm to 10pm) and on two to three Saturdays per month. Students have the advantage of the resources of a world-renowned research university including faculty, research centers and libraries.
