Program Description

EdD Educational Leadership

Lehigh Graduate School of Education (College of Education ONLINE)

We specialize in delivering online doctoral and master’s degrees in Education, as well as credit bearing Certificate programs.

Degree and certificate programs require that enrolled online students attend 2 face-to- face summer institutes, where during each summer session they can earn up to 9 credits at our Bethlehem, Pennsylvania campus.

All other program courses are delivered through an online internet platform during the fall and spring semesters allowing our students to stay in their home countries and study during those semesters.

Students who are non-residents would have appropriate visa application documents sent to them for their summer study on our campus. The summer program consists of 3 nine day sessions during the months of June and July, students can complete a 3 credit course in each of the sessions. During this time they can take one, two or three courses.

A typical academic year would be as follows:

  • Fall semester- online course taken at home in a student’s respective home country
  • Spring semester- online course taken at home in a student’s respective home country
  • Summer session- taking courses face-to-face on the Lehigh University campus, Bethlehem PA USA.
