Liberty University Postgraduate and Doctoral Admission Requirements – Online Programs

After completing a master’s degree, students are eligible to pursue a postgraduate or doctoral degree program. Postgraduate degrees include industry-specialized advanced degrees such as the Education Specialist (Ed.S.) and the Master of Theology (Th.M.) which are pre-doctoral but give advanced training and knowledge beyond the graduate level. Students with a master’s degree can also pursue an online doctoral degree. Doctoral degrees are the highest level of college education and include a final, comprehensive project such as a dissertation or research project. Some popular examples of our doctoral degrees are the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) and the Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.).

Students pursuing Liberty’s online doctoral programs may have residential requirements including on-campus intensives and internships. This information is available on our individual program pages.
