Doctoral Completion Program, Ed.D.

The purpose of the Edgewood College Doctoral Completion Program is to provide students with advanced graduate work in an accredited education or leadership program the opportunity to complete their dissertation and earn an Ed.D. We assist All But Dissertation (ABD) students in completing their dissertation, culminating in an Ed.D. degree.

We emphasize four key components with our students: 1) course work specifically focused on the dissertation, 2) research and writing guidance, 3) intensive one-on-one advising, and 4) peer support via a cohort model. The Edgewood College Doctoral Completion Program offers support, expert guidance, and a trusting community of learners with the aim of producing scholarly researchers, academic writers, and Edgewood College leaders.

  • 30-credit program, ending in an Ed.D. and dissertation. With steady enrollment and progress, students can complete the program in 18-24 months.
  • 21 credits of formal coursework and 9 credits of dissertation work with advising.

Format

  • Offered in a blended format, the Doctoral Completion Program will combine classroom learning with online support.
