Ph.D. in Education - Self-Designed
The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership Ph.D. in Education Program produces educators who can address the nation's most pressing educational challenges. Students examine educational theory and practice within a broadly conceptualized curriculum. Professionals must have defined learning goals and, based on their needs, design their own program of study. Educators who are interested in pursuing an area that is not among the specializations currently offered may develop their own specialization with the approval of the faculty chair. Current students have developed self-designed specializations in curriculum areas such as math education, science education, art or music education, and literacy, as well as in discipline areas such as English-language learning and urban education. Walden is ideal for ambitious learners.
