Our doctoral degree program prepares you for careers in research and instruction in higher education and for leadership roles in administration and policy-making at the state and national levels. The program is currently only admitting and preparing students in special education.

Ph.D. programs are not part of the Auburn University approved Educator Preparation Programs. The state of Alabama does not have certification/license at this level and therefore this degree is not eligible for reciprocity in other states.
