Warner School offers new Ed.D. option

Working educators can now earn a doctorate in education in as few as three years through a new part-time program at the Warner School. This accelerated option targets professionals seeking to enhance their intellectual understanding, deepen their leadership capabilities, and position themselves for elevated organizational responsibility in educational institutions.

Eligible students can complete the program in three years of part-time study, assuming the transfer of 36 credit hours of relevant graduate work. Classes are held on weekday evenings, leaving weekends free. The option is available with specializations in school leadership, higher education, teaching and curriculum, counseling, and human development.

"This is an opportunity for educators to earn a doctoral degree of genuine distinction without putting their careers on hold," says Raffaella Borasi, dean of the Warner School. "Students will apply research and best practices to the real challenges they face in their work."

An information reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 14, in the Welles-Brown Room of Rush Rhees Library. For more details, call x5-3950 or visit
