The degree of
doctor of education (Ed.D.) is conferred in recognition of high attainment in
the constructive study of educational problems and upon demonstrated ability to
pursue an independent investigation in some area of education.
requirements of all of the Ed.D. programs in the school are described in this
section. More specific and additional requirements of particular programs can
be found on the pages that describe those programs.
By the time a
candidate has completed approximately one-third of the course requirements, a
program of study should be completed in consultation with his or her adviser.
The adviser will present three copies for review to the department chair.
Following acceptance by the chair, one copy of the program is filed in the
Office of Academic Services, one copy is returned to the student, and the third
copy is retained in the department adviser's file.
