What types of teaching opportunities are available to Wagner doctoral students?

An important feature of the Wagner Doctoral Program is the wide range of opportunities for students to obtain the skills and experience necessary to become effective teachers. There are opportunities for doctoral students to work with full-time faculty as tutors, teaching assistants and, eventually, as primary instructors in courses in the master's curriculum.

Can I transfer credits from other graduate-level work toward my doctoral degree?

Credit toward the degree for courses taken at other institutions may be awarded under certain conditions and must be approved by one's faculty advisor and the Director of the Doctoral Program. Decisions regarding transfer credits are not made prior to matriculation and are based on the relevancy of the coursework and on the student's performance in the class.
