The educational doctorate program (Ed.D.) requires 66 semester credits above the master of science degree. Students first complete either 30 graduate level semester hours beyond a master’s degree (in any field) or 30 graduate level semester hours in an educational specialist program and then begin 36 credits of coursework for the Ed.D. degree. The curriculum is organized into three broad areas: 1) Core Leadership courses (18 hours), 2) Research courses (9 hours), and 3) Dissertation Courses (9 hours).

A program leading to the doctor of education (Ed.D.) degree is offered in the area of educational and organizational leadership. The doctoral program is designed for students interested in studying leadership, as applied to educational institutions and other organizations, from a faith-based perspective.
