The EdS in Education Leadership is a program designed specifically for individuals employed in an education role but outside the PreK-12 environment. Administrators, faculty and other higher education employees as well as private enterprise educators will benefit from this program. Fort Hays State University has a Memorandum of Understanding with Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas, whereby all 30 hours of the EdS degree from FHSU will transfer to Lamar toward their 60 hour EdD program. Both the Eds program at FHSU and the EdD program at Lamar are offered fully on-line.
The admissions process requires that you meet the requirements for both the FHSU Graduate School and the Educational Administration Program. Please fill out an application online and submit the additional materials listed on the Graduate School Website. You will also submit all departmental admission materials listed on this page directly to the Graduate School, where they will be forwarded on to the Department of Advanced Education Programs. The admissions requirements for the Specialist in Education program take into account your G.P.A. and your work.

A committee will review your file and forward a recommendation of approval or denial to the Dean of the Graduate School.
