Career and Technical Education Ph.D.
Our doctoral program prepares you for careers in teaching, administration, extension service, and training. We also prepare you for development positions in public and private education, business/industry, and government agencies. We build upon the knowledge of your previous experiences and studies. With this degree, you can assume leadership roles, manage programs, and teach in a variety of settings.
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.
