Dissertation Guidance and Support

The applied research dissertation is a hallmark of the online Doctor of Education (EdD) program at Clarkson College. Research topics are often related to the student’s professional experiences and roles. Dissertations often involve interests in areas such as leadership, health care, health care education, higher education, and organizational behavior.

The dissertation process is embedded in the curriculum. This format provides structure, accountability, and built-in faculty guidance during each phase. A completed dissertation may serve as a launch pad for future research, publications, presentations, and professional involvement. Regardless of one’s profession as an educator, practitioner, researcher, or administrator, the dissertation is a lifelong source of personal pride, achievement, scholarship, and professional advancement.
