Why Study Teaching and Learning at UND?
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in teaching and learning is awarded in recognition of creative scholarship and research. In contrast to the Ed.D. degree which stresses professional practice, the Ph.D. focuses on intensive study in an area of concentration.
Our doctoral program offers three specializations:
- Higher Education — Preparation to be a college or university professor of an academic discipline
- Teacher Education — Preparation to be an educator of teachers at a college or university and/or an educational specialist for teachers in PK-12 schools.
- Instructional Design and Technology — Preparation to become teachers, researchers and/or scholars with a focus on understanding curriculum design, human learning and the integration of technology.
