New England College (NEC) has expanded its offerings for its doctorate of education (EdD). The college, based in Henniker, launched a hybrid EdD program in 2011, which enables students to advance through a variety of online courses and residencies formed at the time of enrollment. This initial program focused primarily on leadership and administration in the student’s chosen area whether Pre-K through grade 12 or postsecondary education.
In contrast to the original hybrid program, NEC’s new EdD program, launched this past January, is delivered 100% online and is designed for a national audience. “The online program focuses on educational leadership across sectors, combining Pre-K through grade 12 and higher education into one group,” said Dr. Gavin Henning, professor of Higher Education at NEC. “And in response to the national conversation about racial justice, we have threaded an equity focus across the curriculum.”
