EdS to EdD Bridge Program

If you’ve earned your EdS, Alverno’s EdS to EdD bridge program allows you to apply 15 credits from your EdS towards your Doctor of Education. As an EdD student, your EdS courses count as elective credits towards your EdD and take the place of your concentration.

As soon as you begin the program, you’ll be matched with an advisor who will guide you through the dissertation process and provide support along the way. You’ll be challenged through rigorous coursework to further develop your skills as a leader and educator.
