Ed.D. Program Quick Facts

Delivery Formats 


Students opting for the face-to-face delivery format take classes in the late afternoon, evenings, and weekends on the Fresno State campus. The face-to-face cohort model connects students in learning environments with each other and faculty members advancing research on the practice of educational leadership.


Students opting for the online delivery format will participate in a virtual campus experience of interactive classes delivered online. Courses will be offered using the Canvas learning management system. The courses will use a balance of synchronous and asynchronous tools available in Canvas, in addition to email, video conference, teleconference, and other technology as appropriate (e.g., Zoom, Google Hangout, GoogleDocs). Because our program views interpersonal interactions as a crucial leadership skill, students will have opportunities to meet with their cohort members and program faculty during the required summer residencies at Fresno State.

All Fresno State educational leadership doctoral students have full access to a wide range of support services to enhance their engagement, well-being, and academic success.
