The Doctor of Education (EdD or DEd) degree is a doctorate degree that prepares individuals for academic, administrative, clinical, and research positions in education. Just like other doctorates, the EdD degree is a terminal degree and an academic degree of the highest level that is recognized by the National Science Foundation (NSF) as equivalent to the PhD. The status of the Doctor of Education degree differs from country to country. The Doctor of Education degree is almost identical to the PhD in Education. They are viewed equally on an academic level and both require rigorous research. The EdD has slightly less of a focus on research than the PhD since it also focuses on the application and practice of the research and theory.
