About the Department
The Department of Doctoral Higher Education offers doctoral programs in a cohort model that involve two-week visits to the Azusa campus in early January and again in July. Students are admitted once a year in July as part of a cohort of 12–18 working professionals in higher education.
The department provides three programs: a Ph.D. in Higher Education, an Ed.D. in Higher Education Leadership, and a Global Ph.D. in Higher Education that is offered in China’s Henan Province. Each program assists students in identifying and developing personal and professional competencies that enable them to contribute more effectively to all areas of their lives.
