Course Delivery

Currently, in each course of the Ed.D. program students engage in the following learning activities:

  • Meet for 25 hours of face-to-face instruction per semester
  • Participate in 15 hours of online learning
  • Spend 5 hours of field work in the community

The Ed.D. curriculum includes required courses, cognates (electives) and guided dissertation development. Participants will complete a minimum of 54 credits of coursework, including the dissertation design courses. Continuous registration will be required until the dissertation is defended.

Canvas is Molloy's new comprehensive learning platform designed to support fully online or blended learning with features that enhance student learning and collaboration. The Canvas online modules contain links to readings and videos that you may explore on your own or in collaboration with others. The discussion boards allow you to respond to required and self-selected readings and then engage in a dialogue about the readings with each other. Canvas lends itself to setting up various group activities, connects easily to library resources and also leverages various external tools such as Google docs. And, Canvas support is available 24 hours a day - seven days a week!
