The University of New Georgia will offer a new online doctor of education program starting August of this year. It is now waiting for approval by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges.

The latest online doctor of education program at UNG is a 60-hour program for educators with leadership experiences. Enrollees may specialize in research, college teaching and higher education. Career educators who finish the online doctor of education program can advance in their profession, both in practice and research, according to the University of New Georgia.

The online doctor of education program offered by UNG provides opportunity to people engage in teaching or running educational institutions. Very few universities offer this specialization.

There are several benefits in grabbing the opportunity to earn a doctorate in education. Teachers who aim to move up the ranks in the field of education will not have to go farther to realize their dreams. They can take the course and earn the degree without commuting to and from universities that offer the program in their campuses, according to Careertipster.com.

Online doctor of education program is usually finished in a shorter period of time. This is because only the major subjects are offered considering that the students had taken most of the other subjects in their master's degree course.

Researcher Jared Goff has been studying the different online doctor of education program offered by different universities. He observed that these programs were appropriately designed for career educators who aspire to advance in their profession. Taking an online doctor degree program was one of the steps towards achieving that goal, according to PR Newswire.

Under the UNG online doctor in education program, the course can be finished within 60 hours. Credits are given to subjects already taken and to the work experience of those practicing their profession. In consequence, the online doctor of education program is shorter than regular programs.
