"Take your career further, faster, with Walden University’s online Education Specialist (EdS) programs. These EdS programs prepare you to pursue new leadership roles while you lay the groundwork to pursue a doctorate, if you so choose. With the Lifelong Learner Pathway, students in the Doctor of Education (EdD) program and the EdS programs all take the same first-year courses. If you’re inspired to go for your doctorate, you can transfer seamlessly without starting over, saving you time and money.
In a Walden EdS program, you can:
• Build your credentials faster and at a lower cost than it takes to obtain a doctorate.
• Transfer credits from prior coursework and accelerate your degree.
• Receive dedicated support, from your Foundation course to the end of your capstone.
