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 the Doctoral Dissertation. Some popular examples of our doctoral degree programs are the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.) and the Doctor of Business Administration (D.B.A.).
