In this unique model, you can complete your degree online with opportunities to collaborate with your cohort at on-campus Seattle residencies. Bring your expertise and engage with a problem of practice throughout your program under the guidance of experienced educational leaders.

The Doctor of Education program offers a rich, dynamic learning experience—one that blends critical engagement with theory, practice, and research.

Providing innovative and engaging opportunities, our EdD further cultivates the skills and knowledge necessary to effect meaningful change in your organization. As a doctor of education student, you will collaborate with an accomplished group of fellow practitioners, exposing you to global perspectives and strengthening your ability to think critically about today’s educational challenges.

Students will complete most EdD coursework online with an additional required on-campus residency. For more information about this program and the cohort model in Seattle, please request additional program information.
