EdD: Doctor of Education

Become a catalyst for positive change in your school, agency, or community. Fielding’s Doctor of Education (EdD) degree is designed for professionals inspired to tackle the challenges in today’s educational and human services systems.

Intellectual Power

Fielding’s EdD degree offers supportive, mentoring faculty who help students integrate their life experiences with rigorous academics. The EdD degree helps students harness their own transformative power, building on their existing knowledge and experience. Energized by the freedom and encouragement to explore interests they care deeply about, our students move beyond knowledge consumption to knowledge production.

Our faculty are actively engaged with each student and his or her learning plan. Fielding’s EdD provides a self-directed pathway for students to identify, explore, and pursue a personally and professionally relevant dissertation topic. Students develop customized learning plans to study their unique interests. Through a combination of project-based learning and competency-based instruction, they learn to solve real-world education problems in their communities.
