The Ph.D. in Education online degree program produces leaders who can address the nation's most pressing educational challenges. Each online degree specialization is designed to meet both your professional interests and the needs of your school district, college or university. This graduate degree is ideal if you are already a teacher, and your career goals include becoming a superintendent, faculty member at a university or community college, teacher or administrator.

Educators who are interested in pursuing an area that is not among the specializations currently offered may develop their own specialization with the approval of the faculty chair. Current students have developed self-designed specializations in curriculum areas such as math education, science education, art or music education, and literacy, as well as in discipline areas such as English-language learning and urban education. Pacific InterContinental College (PIC) is ideal for ambitious learners.

The PhD in General Education focuses on practice and theory of teaching and learning as well as administration and support.
