Doctor of Philosophy in Education Degree

The workforce education and development concentration is a broad, general leadership and professional development degree that serves individuals having knowledge, experience, and interests in:

  1. career education
  2. career and technical education
  3. public and private sector training and development
  4. human resource development and related technical and professional fields

Even though many students entering the program have a specific occupational area identity (e.g., business education, health careers education, industrial education), the degree is not awarded in a service area specialty.
