A partnership between the University of Missouri-St. Louis and Shenyang Normal University designed for Chinese students

Inquiry Practice in Curriculum and Teaching and Learning Ed.D. Learning Community is a partnership between the College of Education at UMSL and the School of Education at Shenyang Normal University (SYNU). Students explore the history, theory, and practice of curriculum in the U.S. and in selective comparative contexts. Chinese teachers and other educational professionals seeking to learn about American education and advance their careers in the areas of curriculum, teaching, and learning will find this a valuable international program. In a collaborative learning community, Chinese students spend the first year working with a faculty mentor team at SYNU. They spend the next two years of their program at UMSL, completing their coursework and conducting research for their dissertations. Faculty mentor teams from both UMSL and SYNU serve as advisors. Students apply to the program through SYNU and are admitted into to the Ed.D. program at UMSL, which grants the degree.

Doctor of Education, Educational Practice (EdD)


 Students seeking the Ed.D. degree are expected to meet the Graduate School’s relevant practitioner doctoral degree requirements and procedures.
