Backed by the rich history and reputation of our over 60-year-old traditional campus, Grand Canyon University's online doctoral programs offer learners the flexibility to research and focus on their dissertation at the times that best fit their lives and schedules.

With dedicated and persistent effort many of our doctoral programs can be successfully completed a minimum of three years.
