The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) is an online program with some face-to-face requirements designed to facilitate the learning styles of adults by providing a collaborative community for higher-level thinking and problem solving. Undergirding the program are four key components: critical thinking, scholarly research that informs practice, writing, and learning from a Christian worldview. All students must complete a culminating experience: the submission and successful defense of a doctoral dissertation.
