Doctoral degrees

Our doctoral programs prepare students to excel as scholars and leaders committed to mobilizing knowledge and people to improve education.

The Doctor of Education (EdD) in leadership and innovation is designed for practicing educator leaders who work in a range of settings and want to create better opportunities and environments for learners of all ages. The program is offered in both face-to-face and online formats. Both formats emphasize cohort-based learning and a research core. The program empowers graduates to develop research-based insights so they can drive innovations that address pressing challenges of practice.

Our Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programs prepare scholars who conduct rigorous transdisciplinary research that impacts education scholarship, policy and practice. Our PhD students work closely with our internationally recognized faculty on collaborative and independent research projects.

The PhD in educational policy and evaluation prepares scholars to engage in systematic analyses of education policies in a variety of settings, including schools, universities, research centers, government agencies and nongovernmental organizations.

The PhD in learning, literacies and technologies prepares scholars to generate knowledge that will catalyze educational interventions and innovations that can improve pre-K–20 programs.
