* EDP 613 requires a solid foundation in Introductory Statistics. New students may acquire that foundation by passing EDC 555 (Quantitative Thinking and Applications for Educational Data) during the the 10-week summer session proceeding Year One. Alternatively, they may demonstrate that foundation and "test out" of EDC 555 by taking an amalgam of the mid-term and final examinations from EDC 555 and achieving a score of 75% or higher.

** EDP 641 is a one-credit course taken four times (Fall and Spring semesters beginning Year 2). A "Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory" graded course, it provides a forum for initially identifying individuals' areas of interest and inquiry, exploring them, formulating potential research questions, and considering useful research strategies, en route to the dissertation.

*** These specialization courses may include advanced course(s) in research methods that address the Dissertation topic. Schedule above indicates a variety of times that such courses might be taken toward the 12-hour total required for the Specialization Area. These potential times, of course, total far more than 12 hours.

Individual's Area of Specialization

  • Four courses (12 hours) or more in areas related to the dissertation ***
  • Research-Methods Courses

In order to accommodate the professional schedules of students - most have full-time jobs - all required courses in the Program begin at 4:00 P.M. or later.
