Doctoral Program (Ed.D.) in Learning and Teaching

The Doctoral Program in Learning and Teaching leads to the degree of Doctor of Education (Ed.D.). The program prepares students to work as educational researchers, curriculum developers, teacher educators, professional-development providers, and mentor teachers in schools, universities, and other educational settings.

The program enables students to acquire broad and deep knowledge of processes of learning and teaching, to develop research skills with quantitative and qualitative methods, and to complete an individualized program of studies in an area of specialization. Students also complete qualifying procedures and dissertation projects under the supervision of an Adviser and two Doctoral Committee members with expertise in the area of specialization. The program requires a minimum of 60 semester hours beyond the master's degree that applicants are expected to hold.
