Curriculum | PhDEL

Degree Completion

To become a candidate for graduation from the PhD in Education and Leadership program, students will complete 50 credit hours of coursework. The curriculum is designed to be completed online in a cohort-model within three years, with one onsite session held annually; however, if students need additional time to complete the dissertation or other coursework, individual accommodation is available to span over a time period no longer than seven years.

January Conference

Annually, students must attend an extended-weekend Interprofessional Education and Leadership (IPEL) Conference, ONSITE at a location in Oregon.
