The Ed.D. program will use a hybrid (combining synchronous and asynchronous online delivery with face-to-face opportunities) model for program delivery.
Because our program views interpersonal interactions as a crucial leadership skill, students will have opportunities to meet regularly with their cohort members and program faculty. We have designed the program for working professionals to have 4-6 weekends over the course of each semester.
Students enroll in 6 credits each term (summer, fall, spring) and engage in one hybrid 3-credit course at a time, allowing concentrated focus on specific concepts within an 8-week period. Typical Ed.D. courses will take place on weekends, with each course having three Friday evening (5-9 pm) and Saturday (8 am-5 pm) sessions.
Note regarding COVID-19: We recognize and acknowledge that we are recruiting for the Ed.D. program in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since March 2020, the Ed.D. program has been delivered completely online with a mix of synchronous and asynchronous activities. We do not have a timeline yet, but this Ed.D. program will return to hybrid courses that blend in-person activities with online delivery as it is safe to do so.
