Antioch students are working to do better – our rigorous, doctoral-level programs prepare you to thrive in a dynamic, diverse, and innovative world while growing your potential impact.

Requirements

To be successful in this program, you will have a minimum of five years’ professional experience, either before or after your master’s work. Regardless of your current position, you must be able to envision yourself as an agent for educational change in whatever setting you work.

Although you must hold a master’s degree, it does not need to be in education. You should have an interest in using your EdD to advance study about educational practice in your field and should be able to identify a specialty focus for your doctoral work. You may be able to transfer in up to 12 credits of prior master’s or post-master’s graduate study in that specialization, either from Antioch or another accredited university.*

*Pursuant to Ohio Department of Higher Education regulations, only graduate credits in excess of 30 applied toward the master’s degree may be eligible for transfer.

Join a thriving and committed community, led by a team of faculty with decades of experience.
