            Ph.D.: Doctor of Philosophy in Education

            Apply Now‌In addition to course work that emphasizes the study of leadership, theory, ethics, technology and organizations, program evaluation and research methodologies, the PhD program provides opportunities for development as a research scholar with a research intensive apprenticeship experience. In the final year of the program, PhD students work closely with their faculty mentors in an apprenticeship. While focused on enhancing and expanding the PhD student’s research skills and knowledge, faculty mentors work with their mentees to identify and design apprenticeship activities based on the PhD student’s professional goals and discipline. Some examples of apprenticeship activities include curriculum development, grant writing, conference proposals and presentations, writing for publication, teaching, learning advanced research methods not covered in the program’s four research courses, and leading workshops on topics related to the student’s expertise.

            Developed for working professionals, courses are held in a weekend format on Drake University’s campus, so you can continue to work full time. The program is a minimum of 54 credits with no transfer credits accepted.
