EdD students may choose to study full-time, in which case they may qualify for a graduate assistantship appointment that includes both a tuition waiver and a cash stipend. Assistantship duties may require teaching, research, or a combination.
Part-time EdD students typically need about twice as many years to complete their degree as full-time students. Usually, they finish their coursework in approximately four years.
We encourage our EdD students to present at national and international conferences such as those held by the National Association for Research in Science Teaching, Association for Science Teacher Education, and American Educational Research Association. Presentations often result in journal publications co-authored by faculty or other doctoral students.
