Students are guaranteed progression to a degree program through curriculum consisting of credit-earning courses. We provide full integration with domestic and international students on campus from highly trained university instructors and tutors while giving you academic support throughout the program.

The Doctor of Education (EdD) is a terminal degree for leaders in education who wish to develop and lead sustainable, innovative solutions to actual problems of practice in their own professional settings (e.g., schools, government agencies, nonprofits, and other organizations with a significant educational mission).
