Online Education PhD Degree Programs

Student populations are shifting, and technology is changing the way we process information. If you're interested in the administration of learning, consider earning an education doctorate degree. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the number of adults attaining a bachelor's degree has increased over the last twenty-five years. The total number of public and private elementary and secondary schools has also increased steadily since the early 1980s. This means more job opportunities for those interested in education management, and higher education is usually required for those who desire a job in education administration. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), if you want to be a principal, a school district administrator, or a university department head or chief academic officer, higher education is a must.

Earning a PhD in education will do more than prepare you for a higher teaching position; it will help you understand what environments and procedures enhances teacher effectiveness and student learning. You can specialize in elementary and secondary education, adult education, higher education, or special education. Your doctoral degree program will present you with coursework in human and societal development and learning methods. If you want to manage the policies and operations of a school, university or college, consider earning a doctorate degree in education.
