Doctor of Education Minor in Gerontology

The Ed.D. in Education offers students a menu-driven approach to customizing their doctoral degree with nine different concentration options, flexible curriculum choices, and multiple instructional delivery options. The 5 main components of the degree are the Core Seminars, the Concentration, the Research Elective, the Electives/Minors, and the Applied Dissertation. Students may elect to take their core seminars online or at one of our many instructional sites throughout the US, while concentration and elective courses will all be delivered completely online. The 6 courses in the Gerontology Minor (18 credits) can be taken as electives. The full minor is available as a Certificate in Graduate Studies (CAGS) as well, which can be taken by itself or in conjunction with the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.).
