The 2010-11 application deadline for George Fox University's doctor of education program in Central Oregon is set for Nov. 1.
The graduate teaching program, designed for licensed educators, is offered through the university's School of Education, which is approved by the Oregon Teachers and Standards Practices Commission and accredited nationally by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Central Oregon classes for the doctor of education program meet at the university's Redmond campus, located at 248 S.E. College Loop, Building 1, in Redmond, Ore. Classes will be offered face-to-face on scheduled Friday/Saturdays, usually once a month, and online in the fall and spring. During the summer months the classes will be offered in a three-week concentrated format in Redmond.
The program's curriculum emphasizes moral leadership and provides reasoned solutions to problems encountered in the process of meeting institutional and community goals. Classes focus on ethical, legal, social, political and historical perspectives on educational questions. The doctoral program also equips students to use qualitative and quantitative research tools to increase their understanding of the problems encountered in educational organizations.
The 63-credit-hour program is designed to be flexible for educators, offering modular, online and intensive summer courses that allow students to complete course work in four academic years.
Students may also earn either of the two K-12 Oregon administrative licenses while completing the doctorate of education. A separate admission application is required for either the initial or continuing administrator license.
