Ed.D. in Curriculum & Instruction


For answers to more FAQs about the School of Education, see the general FAQs page.

For what roles will the Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction prepare me? People who complete this program usually go into one of three areas. They may stay in the schools as teachers, coordinators, administrators or curriculum directors. They may go on to teach in an area university usually related to their own prior teaching experience (e.g., methodology, student teaching supervision, etc.). Finally, a small number go into consulting, again based upon their prior training and experience.

Of course, students do not progress at a uniform speed. Typically, coursework takes from two-three years, and the dissertation another year or two.

The Ed.D. is defined as 72 hours past the bachelor's degree. We can accept up to 27 hours of your prior graduate work to be included in the 72, leaving a total of 45 hours as the minimum to be taken in this program.
