Student & Graduate Reviews
Hello Valencia, In the EDDR 697 course, candidates complete and defend their dissertation proposal before the dissertation committee. Should candidates need more than one session to complete and defend their proposal, they would need to register for an additional session of EDDR 697. The course may be taken up to six times in order to allow additional time to complete the dissertation proposal and defense. Therefore, it is possible for candidates to receive a passing grade for EDDR 697 but still need to take another iteration in order to complete and defend their proposal.
Hello, Thank you for your feedback on your experience in the Ed.D. program. The transition from Phase II to the research courses can be a challenge since candidates work more independently. However, it is important that candidates are getting support from their Faculty Chair and dissertation committee. There are objectives that need to be fulfilled at various points of Phase III, such as proposal defense, before candidates can proceed to Phase IV of the program. Should candidates need more than one session to complete their dissertation proposal, they would need to register for an additional session of EDDR 697. The course may be taken up to six times in order to allow the candidate additional time to complete the proposal and defense.
