Education

USU’s distance-delivered doctorate accommodates a maximum of 20 students in each cohort cycle (the same group of students begins, proceeds through, and completes the program together). The Education PhD with a Curriculum and Instruction specialization prepares educators and administrators to make significant contributions as leaders in K-12 settings or as faculty in teacher education programs in higher education.
Affordable, high-quality courses are broadcast to selected RCDE campuses and centers during late afternoon and evening hours, and students also spend two summers on the Logan campus taking face-to-face courses.

Note: This is not an online program and is only available in the state of Utah.


 Applications for the 2014 cohort are competitive and must be received by February 1, 2014. Coursework begins fall 2014.

Each fall and spring semester, one or two doctoral-level courses are broadcast on Monday and Thursday evenings to several USU Regional Campuses and Education Centers statewide. These are interactive (two-way video, two-way audio) classes with online instructional components.

Additionally, for two summers, students register for 9 credits and attend full-time classes in Logan. (The summer experience is condensed to about one month, with further work completed electronically.) During the third summer, students complete comprehensive exams and begin work on dissertation proposals. Typically, travel to Logan is required during the third summer and for follow-up dissertation -related work.
