Education Doctoral Program Announces New Cohort for Summer 2012
Education professionals work five days a week at their jobs, but some choose to work on weekends as well—earning a doctorate degree through the Education Leadership Doctoral Program at the McKay School of Education.
After a successful year with the 2011 doctoral cohort, doctoral chair Scott Ferrin, and the rest of his committee have decided to begin another cohort in the summer of 2012. “We’re in the middle of our first year of the doctorate program, and we’ve had such interesting students from places we didn’t think we’d ever be able to serve,” Ferrin said. “We’re looking forward to this upcoming group, and we welcome students from all places.”
The Education Doctoral Program offers full-time administrators nationwide an opportunity to earn their doctorate focusing on school leadership. Doctoral candidates will come to campus six weekends each semester to attend rigorous classes. Thus they can maintain their full-time careers and complete their coursework in three years. “Our classes are filled with rich discussion . . . [on] important topics that are relevant to the modern world of education,” Ferrin added.
If you are interested in applying for the 2012 doctoral cohort, click here; applications are due April 15, 2012. When you submit your application, an auto-reply message from BYU will be sent to you stating that your application has been received “past due.” However, this is a clerical problem, and your application will be regarded as valid and timely as long as it is completed by April 15.
