Ed.D. in Curriculum and Instruction
The Ed.D. degree program in curriculum and instruction is designed within a practitioner-researcher framework and aims at preparing individuals who will be competent in six core areas: curriculum, instruction, leadership, research, program evaluation, and professionalism. Blending contemporary theory and practice, the program values the interdependence and emerging relationships among educational and social communities. Learning experiences across the program foster students’ individuality, cultural awareness, social responsibility, and creative inquiry. Evening classes accommodate students working full-time in educational settings.
Completion of the degree program increases a graduate’s opportunities for significant impact and influence in roles such as teacher, staff developer, principal, program director, change agent, curriculum director, instructional or learning specialist, college instructor, or administrator of education-related programs and institutions.
The Teaching and Learning Program Distinguished Alumnus/a Award is given for outstanding contributions to the profession and the school. It is presented annually at the Loyola School of Education’s Fall Alumni Reception.
