No Dissertation Ed.D. Programs

Nearly every Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) program requires students to demonstrate they have mastered advanced concepts within the discipline and have earned the title. While the traditional way of determining this has been through a dissertation, many schools have moved to make the Ed.D. more distinct from a Ph.D. As a result, they have embraced two alternative deliverables: dissertations in practice and capstone projects.
