Doctor of Education


EdD students are best described as scholar-practitioners, integrating academic research with the application of acquired learning. 


The EdD is the perfect degree for educational professionals in undergraduate Christian and community colleges, private school headmasters, administrators, teachers, or ministry practitioners with a desire to teach.
