Curriculum and Instruction, Ed.D.

Program Description


If you hold a Standard Professional I (SP I) license, it must be active in order for you to be recommended for an add-on or upgraded license. An expired SP I cannot be modified in any way. If your SP I has expired, you must be rehired by a school district and your district must request that your SP I be reactivated prior to being recommended for your add-on or upgrade.

The Ed.D. is differentiated from the Ph.D. in a small core of unique courses and in two ‘practicums’, one in professional development and the other in a research apprenticeship. The program has two pathways, one a non-licensure doctorate and the other a Curriculum and Instruction Specialist License (consisting of 57 and 66 course and dissertation credit hours respectively). Guidance for admitted students is undertaken through an initial advisor and subsequent faculty committee members.
