Harrison Middleton Universitys admission process is based on a structured series of interviews with explicit talking points. Because our programs are self-directed during the interview process we must determine two critical questions as we review applications:

  • Does this applicant have the ability and preparation to conceive, direct, and complete a doctoral program in his/her field(s)?
  • Will Harrison Middleton University's educational process and resources support the program envisioned by this applicant?

Required Application Materials

The Doctor of Education degree program application requires:

  • Completed Application Form
  • Official transcripts of all previously attended colleges and universities, mailed directly to Harrison Middleton University from the sending institution(s).
    Harrison Middleton University requires students to have earned a masters degree from an appropriately accredited institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Secretary of Education and/or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation, or an accepted foreign equivalent that is listed in the International Handbook of Universities.   The Doctor of Education degree program consists of a cohesive program of interdisciplinary curriculum specifically tailored to the needs and career goals of the individual student.  Generally, any area of content for the masters degree will be accepted.  Students develop their curriculum based on ideas, so they can design the program of study to meet their own educational objectives.  For example, a student seeking a Doctor of Education degree who has a Master of Business Administration may choose to design the additional coursework component of the degree program on topics from the ideas of wealth, labor, matter, progress, quality, law, or some similarly related idea.
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A academic writing sample on a great idea, for example: citizen, education, or law
  • A series of structured interviews with a Mentor, Faculty members or the Dean of Graduate Studies
