Doctor of Education

The doctoral program in curriculum and instruction, leading to an Ed.D. degree, is designed to match a student’s particular background, professional experience, and career goals. The Ed.D. is designed for teachers and school leaders and courses are offered in the evening to allow educators to pursue the doctorate while working in schools. The program individualizes areas of specialization to meet current experiences and future goals.

The program develops graduates who will be effective leaders in bilingual education/ENL, early childhood education, educational leadership, educational technology, kinesiology, literacy, mathematics education, program evaluation and measurement, STEM, or special education.
