Format: Campus

Program Description:

The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Interdisciplinary Educational Studies is a research-based program designed to prepare you for a leadership role in public and private schools, from kindergarten through high school and colleges and universities. The Doctor of Education is the highest degree focusing on the practice of education.

The Ed.D. program prepares educational leaders to transform learning communities; to create lasting school reform; to provide effective oversight of fiscal operations; to infuse new technologies into curricula; to empower teachers to collaborate and develop new ideas for excellence; to inspire lifelong learning among students and adults; to create standards for continuous improvement of diverse schools and communities; and to advance and produce research that contributes to the understanding of the complex process of education.

The 51-credit program is uniquely structured from an interdisciplinary perspective. It is founded on the belief that critical issues in education can most fruitfully be explored using multiple points of view and methods: historical, psychological, philosophical, sociological, legal, financial, governmental, administrative, ethical and cultural. This approach provides a rich environment in which theory and its practical applications are rigorously studied, scrutinized and analyzed through an understanding of the interactions between and among multiple fields and paradigms.
