Faculty for the program are experienced CMU professors who will design the classes to create an online learning community with interaction and innovation typically associated with the most successful doctoral programs, according to the university's announcement.
The 54-credit-hour program, which includes 12 courses, an independent inquiry project and a dissertation, will be part of CMU's College of Education and Human Services in conjunction with the university's Global Campus. The first classes will start in the fall fo 2015.
