  • The 60-semester-hour program is designed specifically for persons who already have a Master’s degree. Building upon the Master’s degree, the program requires a major field of 48 semester hours (Including the dissertation), plus 12 semester hours of research tools. Click Here for HIED Doctoral Handbook 

The research tools are proficiency in educational statistics and in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies.  Students must also be proficient in the use of technology as all courses through out the doctoral program are being offered online.


Each student is required to complete residency after admission to the doctoral program.  Residency provides students with opportunities for enculturation in higher education that provide experience and training toward independent application of skills commensurate with holders of doctoral degrees.  The student will plan the residency activities with the approval of the major advisor.
