Doctor of Education (EdD)

The Doctor of Education (EdD) program is designed to provide qualified students a high level of professional excellence in the area of educational leadership and practice. The program is divided into three major components: Professional Doctoral Core Seminars, Advanced Educational Foundational Seminars, and the Project Dissertation. Both online and on-campus seminars are available.

The theory, relationships, strategy, and practical elements in Christian Education are integrated into each seminar. These then flow into the dissertation project.


The EdD is a 40-hour program designed to be completed in four years.
