The Program

The Doctor of Education in Human and Organizational Learning (HOL) at The George Washington University (GW) is designed to provide professionals with a foundation in relevant theories, concepts, and practices, focusing on the inter-relationships among people, organizations, and learning. The Program prepares learners to challenge assumptions through critical reflection, and foster group and self-directed learning. Theory, research, and practice are balanced throughout the curriculum. The HOL Department is a two-time recipient of the Academy of Human Resource Development's "Outstanding Program" Award. It is the first program in this multidisciplinary field in the United States, having been established in 1958.
