Doctor of Education in Agricultural Education

On-Campus Degree Program

The Doctor of Education (EdD) degree in Agricultural Education is a professional degree designed to prepare a candidate for a position of leadership in the full range of educational settings, including public and private schools and colleges, business, government, industry, and the military establishment. The program is designed for the practitioner. A graduate may be expected to fill instructional, supervisory, and administrative positions in which educational services are to be rendered.

A student entering with a Master’s degree must complete 64 credit hours. Although substantively different from the PhD degree in education, the EdD degree requires equivalent admission qualifications, standards of scholarship and breadth and depth of study. Because graduates of the program are expected to demonstrate a high level of professional skill and educational statesmanship, only those candidates who show a consistently high level of professional performance in their academic studies, in their role-related studies, in their internship experience, and in the completion of their records of study will be recommended for the degree. Details of the requirements are presented below.

All students in this program must complete a residence requirement. More information about this residency requirement can be found on the Additional Requirements tab.
