Doctorate of Education Logistics
The Doctorate of Education is a 60 credit, three-year sequence of coursework. Each August, a new cohort of 10-12 students will begin the program, taking a common sequence of courses and building a diverse network of colleagues who support one another academically, personally and professionally.
There will be five 7-week terms that will meet once a month each year at the Henniker, NH campus and a summer residency:
Summer III-August orientation
Fall I Term-September and October on-campus meetings
Fall II Term-November and December on-campus meetings
Spring I Term-January and February on-campus meetings
Spring II Term-March and April on-campus meetings
Summer I Term-May and June on-campus meetings
Students will be required to register for one course each term. These intensive weekend meetings will be held on Friday afternoon-Saturday evenings (students will not be required to spend the night). These meetings will involve coursework, advising, group meeting times, speakers, and other activities. Students, faculty and visiting practitioner-scholars collaborate throughout the term using the Blackboard Learning Management system, webinars and other technologies. The August residencies are longer and incorporate orientation activities, comprehensive projects, dissertation workshops and presentations, and other development programs.
Access to Campus Resources
All students enrolled in the Doctorate of Education will receive an NEC ID and accounts for an email address and to the Blackboard Learning Management system. With the NEC ID, students will be able to access these accounts and have access to the library databases while on campus and from home. Students will also have access to consortium libraries throughout the region. Library, IT staff and Student Support Services are accessible by phone or email throughout the course of the year.
