Prerequisites: (number of credits: zero to variable) 600 hour internship and masters level course work equivalent to those of a CACREP accredited program. Because of the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, the accreditation review has been delayed. We expect to receive a one-year extension of accreditation from CACREP to complete the review process.
A thesis equivalent is a program requirement for those not having completed a thesis during their master’s program.
For doctoral students either part-time or full-time who are working on their dissertation. Writing the dissertation requires a major commitment of time and effort on both the part of the doctoral student and the faculty advisor. There should be consultation between the student and the dissertation chair about what is expected to be accomplished, and how much time is to be invested before the student registers. The College of Education strongly recommends that students who are registering for ECD 895 Doctoral Dissertation Research or ECD 899 Doctoral Dissertation Preparation register for at least 3 semester hours per semester, when appropriate.
