The Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) in Educational Studies degree from an accredited seminary or divinity school is a post-graduate doctoral degree that prepares students to master educational disciplines from a theological perspective for leadership in education and church environments.
Many Ed.D. degrees combine online or self-study with on-campus sessions where students will have interactions with proven scholars in many fields related to educational leadership. The program will include problem-solving, academic research, and other directed studies in the scholarly arena.
The prerequisite for the Ed.D degree is usually an accredited Master’s Degree with some biblical or theological studies. Also, candidates may be required to show some study hours in related fields like leadership, administration, education, or ministry-related studies.
The Ed.D in Educational Studies is an applied degree that will equip the graduate to perform in real-world occupational situations. The Doctor of Education degree prepares graduates to serve the local church body or denomination, teach or administrate lower and higher-level learning institutions, seminaries, and universities, and serve in para-church organizations.
