Find Your Path
I am a teacher with a master's degree and I want to earn a doctoral degree. I am not sure if I want to earn a PhD or an EdD.
Because we are a Research 1 institution, earning a doctorate from Ohio State University can open many professional doors for you inside and outside P-12. We offer both an EdD and several PhDs. Educators planning to remain in a P-12 setting may opt to do the EdD. You may also choose to complete coursework for one of the endorsements.
Educators who want to become professors or work outside a P-12 setting should consider the PhD, which is often required by non-profit groups, governmental or research organizations or in higher education.
