EDUC 8090 - Doctoral Study Intensive


(12 sem. cr.–6 sem. cr. per term for 2 terms) Students demonstrate in the doctoral study their scholarly abilities to examine, critique, and synthesize knowledge so that new ideas can be tested; best practices identified, established, and verified; or theoretical or policy constructs evaluated and advanced. In all cases, the doctoral study is to be a rigorous, original inquiry that results in new knowledge, demonstrating its efficacy in the world of practice. The goal of the doctoral study is for the education professional to conduct an investigation that focuses on learning, teaching, and leading within a designated community.  (Prerequisite(s): All other course requirements and the residency must be completed prior to registration in EDUC 8090). Note: EDUC 8090 must be taken for a minimum of two terms for a total of 12 semester credits. If more time is needed to complete the doctoral study, additional terms of EDUC 8090 will be required to use university services and support. Additional credits for EDUC 8090 are not reflected in the overall credit requirements needed for graduation, but these additional credits will appear on the transcript.
