International Education Policy, Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.)
Doctoral students are required to complete 90 credits beyond the Bachelor's degree, including a maximum of 24 credits transferred from a previously earned Master's degree. Students are also required to complete 12 credits of EDHI899, which is included in the total credit requirement.
The Ph.D. requires a minimum of 90 credits beyond the B.A. Twenty-four credits are usually accepted for transfer from a previous M.A. degree and 12 credits are awarded for dissertation research, which means the degree generally requires 54 credits of coursework which can be completed in 2 to 3 years. The program is distinguished by the development of a unique program of study to suit the needs of each student. Initial program plans are flexible and are usually revised throughout a student's graduate work as particular directions and their implications for coursework develop.
