The doctoral program in Educational Theory and Practice (EdD) is designed for experienced educators seeking to integrate theory, knowledge, research and practice to increase understanding and improve teaching and learning in early childhood, elementary, secondary and postsecondary educational settings and related fields.
The program's primary emphasis is on providing a "broadening" experience, rather than the more narrow emphases of many other doctoral programs. Within this broadened perspective, specialized study occurs through assignments in core courses, a flexible electives requirement, independent study and dissertation research.
