Howard University Launches Historic Ph.D. Program
Howard University is leading the way in how academic institutions are educating minority-serving communities and schools reports Diverse Education. The HBCU is launching a new Ph.D. program in Higher Education that is the first of its kind in the nation.
The program’s coordinator, Robert T. Palmer, says: “This program really fills a niche, We really want to admit people who have a passion for research.”
Palmer says Howard has partnered with four D.C.-based organizations—American Council on Education to admit 10-12 students to provide them with Ph.D. graduate assistantships. The orgs include: American Council on Education, Excelencia in Education, United Negro College Fund, and The Education Trust.
Focusing on helping minority-serving schools will help students learn more about the obstacles that face their own communities as well as reach achievements that seemed impossible before. Palmer adds “There is an intentionality in the focus and the coursework”
The program requires 72 credit hours and can be completed in four years, with courses offered in the evening and through a hybrid model. The deadline for applications is December 1, 2016. Prospective students can reach Palmer directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
