Program Description


Doctorate in Education at AIU:

Your AIU Distance Learning Doctorate of Education program will be a tailor-made program designed just for you by you and your counselor. This flexibility to meet your needs is rarely found in other distance learning programs. Our program does not require that each student study the same subjects and use the same books and study materials as other students. Instead, our online Doctoral Programs are designed just for you. They are individually designed to meet your needs and help you achieve your professional and personal goals.

Important: You can find below an example of the topics or areas of study that you can develop and work on during your study program. This does not mean in any way that said example implies being a complete list that you are obliged to carry out at AIU, but that it is used by you as it is, an example or guide at your service. We remind you that AIU does not require its students to follow a standardized curriculum. Do you want to learn more about curriculum design at AIU? ( Courses and Study Plans )
