Doctor of Education

36-Hour Program of Studies for LMU EdS Graduates (IL)

Instructional Leadership

The following presents a typical strategy for completing the requirements within Lincoln Memorial University’s 36- hour Doctoral Program of Studies which is designed for those candidates entering the program with an Educational Specialist degree from Lincoln Memorial University in the concentration of Instructional Leadership. This plan should be used in conjunction with the EdD Handbook, LMU’s Graduate Catalog, and with advice from the candidate’s major professor. As the EdS hours that are being accepted for credit will have been taken in a given concentration (IL or CI), doctoral degree work must be in this same area of study. Any candidate interested in two concentrations rather than one, can select the 48-Hour Program. Courses on the plan may differ and/or be scheduled during terms other than those indicated – the depiction below is only a representation of one possible design. This plan reflects required core, research, and primary concentration coursework.
