The Doctor of Education degree program is designed to prepare Christian educators who are currently in or planning to pursue leadership roles in K–12 or higher education institutions.

The Doctor of Education program is designed to produce scholar-practitioners who can make a meaningful impact in formal educational settings. The structure of the EdD allows students to remain in their current place of employment or ministry without relocating to Dallas. Each course assumes educational experience, and faculty endeavor to integrate learning with the student's present context and future goals.


The EdD requires the DTS MACE or an MA in Education with 36 hours of leveling work.

The Curriculum

The Doctor of Education (EdD) program is composed of 48 credit hours.
