Online Programs

In recent years, the School of Education has carefully developed a number of online and hybrid degree programs that offer students the same high-quality experience and personal attention that characterizes our on-campus programs. Using advanced learning technologies and taught by regular School of Education faculty, these programs allow working professionals to attain graduate degrees in education and counseling while continuing to work full-time and without relocating to Williamsburg. 

Executive Ed.D. Programs

Designed for practicing and aspiring school leaders, our executive programs allow educators to earn a doctorate in educational leadership in as little as three years. The program combines online coursework with short on-campus residencies to give students the flexibility to continue working as they study. The Executive Ed.D. in Educational Policy, Planning and Leadership offers concentrations in gifted administration, higher education administration, K-12 administration, and school psychology.
