The program is held in a convenient low-residency format requiring students to attend three total residencies throughout the program. Choose the time and location that suits you best.


Residencies offer an authentic learning experience where students meet and connect with their cohort to engage with course content with doctoral faculty. Although every residency is unique, past students have participated in discussions with educational leaders from around the globe, while engaging with officers from the U.S. Department of State. Residencies are rigorous, motivating and rewarding.
