EdD in Higher Education Administration Program Overview
New England College’s Doctor of Education in Higher Education Administration is designed in the cohort model to help students become experts in their area of interest in a collaborative, supportive team environment with other working professionals.
The low-residency, three‐year, cohort‐based structure of this program is ideal for working professionals, and the focus on applied research allows participants to have an immediate impact on the quality of education in their work environments.
The higher education administration track allows participants to develop expertise in specific settings and issues. The EdD in Higher Education Administration will call on different members of the education community to investigate and address educational issues. This program combines vision, in-depth educational concepts, and networking opportunities to position participants for innovative, entrepreneurial leadership in a complex and changing world.
Students will meet during two weekends in each seven‐week course, at the end of the first and sixth weeks. Each summer, the cohort will meet in August to engage in coursework, dissertation, and comprehensive project development. Participants will display proficiency in meeting the program outcomes by developing a capstone project, developing a dissertation proposal, and completing the dissertation.
During each term, one course meets on our Henniker campus and one course is delivered 100% online, allowing learner-centered flexibility for busy lifestyles.
Tuition waivers are possible for previous coursework. You may submit transcripts for preliminary review.
