Ed.D. Requirements

The Ed.D.is available in the Department of Educational Leadership.

Although the general requirements listed for the Doctor of Philosophy apply to the Doctor of Education, the latter is specifically designed for students professionally oriented to a career in the field of education. Advanced research courses, therefore, may vary from those pursued in other fields, and the program may be considered more appropriate to those especially interested in public education.

Residency requirements for the Ed.D. may consist of three consecutive summer terms of two terms each, with a normal registration for six credits per term on the Oxford campus, and continuous registration in each intervening fall and spring semester until the degree is earned. You must contact the chair of the Department of Educational Leadership to arrange for this plan of residency.
