EdD Program in Curriculum and Instruction

The College of Education Doctor of Education (EdD) in Curriculum and Instruction program prepares students for scholarly inquiry and professional leadership in education.

The program consists of:

  • applied research
  • courses and professional experiences in education and related fields designed to develop a comprehensive academic basis for leadership roles in education
  • applied professional experiences tailored to individual needs and career goals.

Each student works closely with an advisor/committee chair and a supervisory faculty committee to select courses, topics of research, and professional opportunities.

EdD is for classroom teachers who hold a master’s degree, who wish to pursue a doctoral program of studies, and who are willing to participate in appropriate activities in preparation for professional service and leadership in education.  The program is designed to meet the needs of those for whom intensive research is not a practical prerequisite to professional goals.  Doctoral students are expected to participate not only in organized coursework but also in other activities that will ensure breadth of outlook and technical competence.

All courses for the program are offered through the Outreach School, either by Video conference, Audio conference, intensive weekends, Web-based instruction, or a combination of these formats.  This makes the program accessible to Wyoming educators outside of the Laramie area.  The program is not entirely online, but is accessible around the state through the variety of delivery methods listed above.  For more information on Outreach course formats:
