M.Ed. Educational Leadership Online Program

Can the internship hours/experiences for the M.Ed. Educational Leadership online program be completed any time?

Internship courses need to be completed during the fall and spring terms.

Can all field hours/experiences be completed at the student's current school—or is it a requirement to seek experiences at various schools?

Field hours can be completed at the student’s current school. If the student chooses to complete hours at a different location, they must sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the school-based mentor.

Ed.D. Curriculum & Instruction Online Program

How does the dissertation in the Ed.D. online program work? Is it embedded into the program, so students begin working on it after a certain number of courses?

Students are given the option to write a dissertation or three research articles, and they must make their decision before the comprehensive exam.

What is the process for deciding on a dissertation option, and will the two groups be distinguished?

The candidate discusses dissertation options with their major professor before comprehensive exams to arrive at a decision. There will be no differentiation based on dissertation options.

Do students have the option to defend their paper(s) virtually?

Students who choose either option are required to use a traditional dissertation defense.
