Fordham University offers an online Ed.D. that prepares students to become leaders in K–12 education who make a positive impact on children from diverse backgrounds. The program is shaped by three distinct pillars: social justice and ethics, scholarly inquiry and research, and problem-solving and design. Students attend live online classes, complete interactive coursework, and meet faculty and classmates in person at two on-campus immersions. The program can be completed in three years and standardized test scores are required to apply.
