Fall cohorts are forming for Wilkes University’s doctor of education degree at two convenient locations, the Westmoreland Intermediate Unit, Greensburg, and at the Wilkes University campus.
The 60-credit Ed.D. program includes majors in educational technology and kindergarten through 12th grade administration. The K-12 administration track can lead to a superintendent’s letter of eligibility if the student holds a Pennsylvania principal or supervisory certificate at the time of admission.
New this fall is a major in curriculum and instruction, which addresses how to create, apply and assess curriculum and instruction in schools. It is appropriate for anyone who wants to be a leader in K-12 schools or at the college level.
The program combines face-to-face classes with online learning in a blended learning environment. The cohort format allows students to start and finish the program with the same peer group.
Those who successfully complete 12 credits per year could complete coursework in 4 years, followed by dissertation development. Students may transfer 12 credits from another institution toward the degree, providing they were earned post-master’s and align with the curriculum in their chosen area of study.
Cost for the program is $554 per credit.
Applications are currently being accepted for the fall session, which begins in September. Applicants must have a master’s degree in education or a related field and take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) or the Miller Analogies Test (MAT). The MAT will be administered at Wilkes University at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 12.
To register for the MAT or for more information about the degree, contact Pamela Koslosky at firstname.lastname@example.org or at (800) WILKES-U Ext. 7388.
