School of Education Offers New Doctoral Program, Information Session March 16

| March 10, 2015

A new doctoral program in education has been launched by Webster’s School of Education. The new Doctor of Education (EdD) in Transformative Learning in the Global Community will begin June 2015 at the home campus in St. Louis.

This doctorate is designed for individuals who are seasoned scholars, with two master’s degrees (or equivalent) or an education specialist degree, who desire to continue to grow intellectually and make a change in themselves and in the global community. The two-year program incorporates global service learning internships, interdisciplinary courses and dissertation research. The first class will have between eight to 10 students enrolled.

“Today’s teachers face numerous challenges, and one of the most prominent are dealing with students who don’t just change schools from district to district, but from country to country, either because they are immigrants, have parents on temporary work visas, or have parents who work for multinational organizations and relocate often,” said Brenda Fyfe, dean of the School of Education. “As our world become more interconnected, a world-view is becoming a necessity to deal with our modern reality in the classroom.”

Information Session March 16

An information session on the new program will be held Monday, March 16, at 5 p.m. in the Webster Groves Room of Webster Hall. Any inquiries can be directed to the program’s director, associate professor Mary Bevel, at 314-246-7504 or
