About

Do you aspire to drive transformative educational change in your institution and community? Designed for practitioners and administrators from P-12 to higher education, the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) - Early Childhood Education program from Walden University offers flexibility and choices to meet your needs—even if those needs change along the way.

Overview

With the Lifelong Learning Pathway from Walden University, students in most of the PhD in Education, Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) - Early Childhood Education, and Education Specialist (EdS) programs take many of the same initial courses. You can start in one of the post-master’s or doctoral programs in education and move to another degree program, which saves you time and money.

In the EdD program, you can also:

  • Select a course load that is right for you.
  • Benefit from practical support, from your first course to your doctoral study or dissertation.
  • Transfer credits from prior coursework to accelerate your time to degree completion.
  • Apply research and theory to address critical issues facing today’s classrooms and communities.

  • Community College Leadership
  • Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Educational Administration and Leadership (Non-Licensure)
  • Educational Technology
  • Higher Education and Adult Learning

Accreditation

Walden University is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission. Accreditation validates that a university and its programs are rigorous and offer relevant content. Walden University’s accreditation means:

  • The quality of the institution and its programs are continually reassessed and improved.
  • Credits earned are easier to transfer than credits earned at non-accredited institutions.
When evaluating credentials, employers and universities often look for applicants who earned a degree from an accredited university.

  • Convenient start dates throughout the year.
