Graduate Center

Attention teachers, school administrators, and other education practitioners! The College of Education at West Chester University now offers the Doctor of Education in Policy, Planning, and Administration.

This Ed.D. program will prepare regional professionals in all aspects of educational leadership. As a major PreK-16+ partner to regional school districts, the College of Education developed a program that equips practicing educators with the knowledge and skills to conduct relevant research while enhancing their instructional skills. This professional doctorate offers a practical, research-based, and clinically oriented terminal degree that builds on the strong, dynamic programs that West Chester University has offered throughout the years. The program provides professional educators in a variety of settings the skills necessary to identify challenges/questions in their practice and develop action research agendas to inform possible solutions and initiatives.

It will be possible to complete the program and earn your Ed.D. in two years. Courses will meet in a cohort model at the Graduate Center (1160 McDermott Dr., West Chester, PA) beginning in summer 2016. More information about admission requirements, course pacing, costs, and transfer of credits will be available soon.
