Doctor of Education

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.

The common 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.
