Doctoral Program

The Technologies in Education Doctoral Program is designed for select students, who have earned a Master's Degree (with Thesis), interested in developing their expertise relevant to Education Technologies through deep and extensive research.  The program's doctoral students consist of a vibrant learning community that is engaged intensively with faculty research and teaching M.A. students. The doctoral program consists of several courses, with a primary emphasis on writing and executing an empirical research dissertation.  All doctoral students are under the close supervision of a faculty adviser.  Typically, earning a doctorate takes 4 years.  Exceptional students can also be admitted to the direct M.A. + PhD. track, which bypasses writing of a Master's Thesis.  

To enroll in the doctoral program, you must first have a faculty advisor. Please see the faculty page on this site for contact information about our faculty members.
