What is a PhD in Secondary Education? This program is designed for those who already have their teaching degree or may be looking to get their initial certification in teaching. It often builds on an existing specialized background, such as science or history, and provides additional in-depth training in the field of academia. In addition to defending a thesis at the end of program completion, students may also be required to take additional coursework. Some courses may include quantitative and qualitative research methods, educational leadership or advanced pedagogy.

Once students have a PhD, in addition to further practical teaching skills, they should also have strong skills in research and analysis, presentation, communications and organization, all of which are desirable by employers.
