Today’s educators face numerous challenges, among them, teaching students who don’t just change schools from district to district, but move from country to country. As our world become more interconnected, we must be ready for the responsibilities that reach beyond the classroom walls, helping children adapt to and thrive in a variety of learning environments.
Webster University’s Doctor of Education (EdD) in Transformative Learning in the Global Community is designed to build scholars and leaders who are equipped to train the global workforce of tomorrow. This doctorate is designed for individuals who are seasoned scholars, with two master’s degrees (or equivalent), or an education specialist degree, and who desire to continue to grow intellectually and make a change in themselves and in the global community.
By studying the philosophies, histories and theoretical frameworks of education systems, as well as their practical and ethical applications, you will develop a more globally and socially conscious perspective to your scholarship and leadership.
This is a two-year program incorporating global service learning internships, interdisciplinary courses and dissertation research. Admission to the EdD is competitive. There will be only one cohort admitted to the Ed. D. program each academia year; each cohort will have 15 available seats.
There are two required Global Service Learning Practicums – one during the initial phase of the program, and the second after advancing the status of doctoral candidate. The final chapter in each dissertation will be an account of how you developed and implemented a pilot program based on your research to address your dissertation thesis. This program will begin during the Fall 1, 2015 term and is only available at the St. Louis Home Campus. Apply today.
