The online Doctorate of Education (Ed.D.) in Special Education at the University of Florida is a CPED-influenced professional practice doctorate designed to develop expert practitioners, who can serve as service providers, school leaders, professional development providers, and advocates for individuals with disabilities.
Graduates will study their own practice and that of the contexts in which they work, and they will effect change based on evidence in an effort to improve academic and social outcomes for students with disabilities. The program takes approximately four years to complete and culminates in a dissertation-in-practice experience supervised by our world renowned special education faculty.
