The PhD in Education is a research degree conferred in recognition of a candidateÕs command of a broad field of academic and research knowledge and of his ability to initiate, organize, and pursue the investigation of an original problem which is based upon or contributes to the field of education. Doctoral students are required to take and pass the Doctoral Admission Test in Education (DATE) before they are admitted provisionally for a period of one-semester course work or its equivalent, after which said credits are evaluated. For formal admission to the doctoral program, a student must have a grade of 2.00 or better for each subject and a general weighted average of 1.75 or better. A PhD student must also pass a doctoral comprehensive examination before enrolling for dissertation writing.
