The Doctor of Education program is flexible enough to accommodate your schedule and lifestyle. The 60-credit hour curriculum is offered on Texas Wesleyan's historic campus on a part-time basis that allows students to complete the program in as little as four years or as long as 10 years.
Your courses will be delivered both in face-to-face settings that promote personal interaction with faculty and colleagues, and in hybrid settings where flipped classroom technigues allow students to work on-line at times and face-to face at other times. Our professors use a variety of teaching environments - primarily discussions, online sessions, study abroad and professional conferences and collaborative assignments. The culminating project, your dissertation, is centered around your personal interests and goals, and may begin with thoughtul mentoring during your first courses.
Your curriculum includes:
Admission to the Program is contingent upon the following:
Applicants must have educational experience as a teacher (minimum of two years) or administrator (must include teaching experience) in a public, private, or higher education setting.
Among the applicants who meet the above criteria, the ones deemed most highly qualified will be interviewed by the Ed.D. program faculty.
Applicants who are deemed most highly qualified will be asked to sit for an interview with the Ed.D. program faculty. The interview does not assess specific content knowledge in the field. Rather, assessment criteria include the use of correct English grammar and construction, clarity of expression, depth and understanding of educational issues, and analytical ability. The applicant must exhibit capability in communication skills as a requirement of this program.
Admissions to the Ed. D. program is competitive. Given the limited number of faculty available for effective doctoral committee assignments and the anticipated number of applications for each fall semester, the program faculty will select only the mostly highly qualified applicants for admission.
