Doctor of Education in Career and Technical Education Program Approved

Campus shots, Bowman Hall, Clocktower, Spring 2012

UW-Stout is proud to announce the approval of the university’s first doctoral program, the Doctor of Education in Career and Technical Education. This program received final approval during a Higher Learning Commission Board Meeting September 23-24, 2013. This approval was the final step in a two-year process of research, assessment, development, and review.

University of Wisconsin-Stout has proudly delivered quality professional development for Career and Technical Educators since 1918. The Bachelor’s degree in Career and Technical Education has provided degree completion and attainment for WTCS faculty. The Master’s and Education Specialist in Career and Technical Education have provided faculty and staff with graduate education options. We have conferred literally thousands of graduates with degrees who serve as teachers and leaders within the Career and Technical Education community and beyond. The addition of the Doctor of Education in Career and Technical Education (Ed.D. in CTE) completes our CTE program array.

Both students and graduates of the Master of Science and Educational Specialist in Career and Technical Education programs have a great deal to say about their programs here at UW-Stout:

“My UW-Stout CTE graduate education prepared me well for creating and managing a program.”
Tim Tewalt, MS CTE Graduate; Industrial Mechanics Program Director, Chippewa Valley Technical College

“The UW-Stout CTE faculty are excellent instructors; capable and enthusiastic educators.”
Pamela Schield, CTE Graduate Student;  Adjunct Instructor, Northcentral Technical College

“UW-Stout’s CTE graduate programs’ blended instruction is the right balance of accessibility to quality instruction, while maintaining a personal and professional life as a student.”
Daniel Kovach, CTE Graduate Student; Information Technology Specialist, School District of Ashland

We are now accepting applications for our inaugural cohort for the doctoral program. The Ed.D. in CTE will be delivered as a cohort, executive education model that incorporates face-to-face weekend and online classes. The target audience for the program is emerging leaders – in teaching and administration – at both the K12 and postsecondary levels of CTE. The first cohort starts this fall; applications are being accepted with priority review beginning October 11, 2013. The first course in the cohort will begin October 25, 2013.
