"We're very excited to be able to offer an even wider variety of concentrations in the Ph.D. and Ed.D. programs," said Hank Radda, GCU Provost and Dean of the College of Doctoral Studies. "These program specializations will be a beneficial addition for many students who are looking to develop their education in very specific coursework areas."

These programs are conveniently offered online, and the Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership program also includes once-a-year residency experiences that promote collaboration among peers.
