Program Details

Liberty University’s 100% online Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Curriculum and Instruction – Educational Psychology is designed to help K-12 and higher education professionals understand the cognitive and psychological processes that affect how students learn and retain information. Through this program, students can become equipped to improve learning processes and promote academic success in their schools. Completing this non-licensure program is a great way for teachers, professors, administrators, and curriculum specialists to bolster their skills and prepare to better meet the unique needs of their students. With training from Liberty’s experienced faculty, students can explore important aspects of human psychological development and learn to apply that knowledge to their career as an educator. This Ed.D. program also provides ample opportunity for students to bolster their research skills and prepare to solve important problems in the field. For students who have previously earned an Education Specialist (Ed.S.) degree, credits from the Ed.S. can potentially be applied toward the Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction – allowing students to finish their Ed.D. in less time and save money. Upon graduation, students can pursue roles as college/university administrators, curriculum specialists, instructional supervisors, professors, school administrators, and teachers.
