Doctor of Education

The Ed.D. in Literacy, Culture, and Language Education prepares literacy and language practitioners for leadership positions in the field. It provides an unparalleled environment for continual learning with colleagues who share your passion. The program features a holistic and integrative focus on preparing practitioner leaders in literacy and language to better understand and address 21st-century issues and challenges.
