Doctor of Education / Learning Analytics in Higher Education

Program Details

Northcentral University knows that the need for well prepared educational leader practitioners has never been greater. The Doctor of Education (EdD) degree program has evolved to the terminal degree of choice for educational leaders. This is true for teacher leaders, administrators, instructional leaders, experts in education technology, organizational leaders and education professionals beyond the classroom.
The EdD program attracts students who have leadership responsibility for providing learning/training to others, whether they be in colleges, PK-12 schools, proprietary organizations, private and public businesses, or the military.

NCU’s EdD with a specialization in Learning Analytics in Higher Education can set students apart in this field. This program will immerse students, exposing them to the history of data analytics, instruction on the proper identification, utility, and application of relevant data in the educational world. In addition, students will receive an introduction to data mining, types of data analytics, and other important issues within the realm of learning analytics. Students will be well-prepared to lead and oversee the collection and management of sensitive data and the performance of statistical tests that are used in the field.


  • Admission to the Doctor of Education program requires a conferred post-baccalaureate master’s degree and/or doctoral degree from a regionally or nationally accredited academic institution
