Ed.D. in Career and Technical Education

CTE graduates

The Doctor of Education in Career and Technical Education (Ed.D. CTE) is the highest degree awarded at UW-Stout. It builds on UW-Stout’s M.S. and the Ed.S. degrees in Career and Technical Education to prepare leaders who will provide vision, direction, leadership and the day-to-day management of educational activities in technical colleges and other postsecondary settings, as well as secondary divisions of CTE.

The Ed.D. CTE curriculum will prepare graduates to set educational standards and establish the policies and procedures to achieve goals and to maximize student learning. Students will acquire competencies to enable them to:

  • Develop academic programs
  • Monitor student progress
  • Hire, train, motivate, and evaluate teachers and other staff
  • Manage counseling and other student services
  • Prepare budgets
  • Handle relations with staff, parents, students, employers, and the community.

This program is a cohort-based, hybrid delivery model that includes both on campus weekend and evening courses, as well as supplemental online instruction, and fully online courses. The Ed.D. CTE has been developed to blend into the schedule of the working professional. A new cohort is admitted annually.
