Carnegie Project on the Education Doctorate

Responding to the needs of individuals looking to advance their careers, the University of Pittsburgh School of Education offers a Doctor of Education (EdD) program that serves professionals and researchers from various fields through interdisciplinary and practical experiences. The part-time EdD is a three-year cohort-based degree program that accommodates the needs of working professionals through very clear timelines and a hybrid course delivery model, including a one-day orientation, a weeklong intensive on-ramp experience, cross-disciplinary research seminars, and an internship.

The EdD helps graduates advance within their professional careers in educational administration as well as preparing students for careers as faculty within teaching-centered colleges and universities. This is in contrast to our PhD, which is a full-time program that helps to prepare graduates for research-oriented careers and/or working as faculty within research and doctoral granting universities. Get in touch to find out more information now.

Check out our EdD videos, which provide a comprehensive view of the doctoral programs available. Discover why we created the new EdD program, how our programs allow for a work/life balance, the importance of a cohort model, and the benefits of studying with students in other disciplines. Also, if you're trying to choose which doctoral path is the right one, you can also compare with our PhD program. And if you'll be joining us from outside of Pittsburgh, we have a video to give you a better sense of the city and our campus.
