Here are the distinctions in course delivery between our Ph.D. and Ed.D.
Our department’s Ph.D. program is limited to students who can complete the program knowing they may have to enroll in one or more classroom-based courses in the mix of our primarily online hybrid program. This can occur because Ph.D. specialization coursework is individual to each student and often taken outside our department. Thus, we can’t guarantee those courses will be available in an online format, nor do we know when those classes meet.
Our Executive Ed.D. program, is offered wholly online hybrid.
Classroom Based. Students are required to attend physical in-person class meetings held on-site.
Online Hybrid Courses. All of the course activities are completed online via an LMS. No expectation to attend class on-site. However, one or more scheduled live (synchronous) class meetings held on an audio-video platform. All 500, 600, and 700 level courses with an EDL or ELS prefix are online.
