Early Childhood Education Ph.D. on the OU-Tulsa campus

The University of Oklahoma offers the Ph.D. in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum with a concentration in Early Childhood Education in its entirety on the Tulsa campus.  Course delivery is typically in the evenings.  If enrolled full- time, coursework can be completed in three years.  Part-time enrollment will result in more time needed to complete courses.  Coursework is followed by the writing of a doctoral dissertation.  Time for completion of the dissertation varies from candidate to candidate.

The Ph.D. program is designed to prepare faculty researchers and leaders serving young children (birth through age eight) and their families, in multiple settings.  The program will have a strong focus in research, leadership, and advocacy, as well as infant/toddler studies.
