Doctor of Education

Oral Roberts University

Professionalism. Morality. Ethics. Compassion. Leadership. A great teacher or administrator does not just teach or manage, but helps students and faculty become better individuals. The Graduate School of Education at ORU is committed to providing the opportunity for individuals responding to the call of God to become "transformed professional Christian educators." Educational training from a Christian worldview is the best way to achieve this important goal, and that is what you will receive in the ORU Graduate School of Education - the knowledge, skills, and inspiration base to help influence and transform lives. This program, designed around the theme "Transformed Educators", prepares professional Christian educators to go into every person's world with a passion for Christ while instilling strengths of ethical behavior, knowledge, and competence in their students who will, in turn, change society. An ORU Graduate School of Education degree provides the opportunity for individuals who hold Christian principles to gain advanced preparation for professional responsibilities in education throughout the world.

All of our programs are designed for the adult distance learner. The primary delivery system for the course offerings has become an intensive, but enjoyable 4-day module class format. These modules have extensive pre and post assignments, simulations and dynamic in-class discussions. A unique strength of the program is that the students contribute national and international perspectives.
