The Ed.D. Summer Institute is an one-week educational residency held each year of the three years of your doctoral education. Courses and activities run from 8am-6pm, Monday-Friday on the NJCU Campus, just a few miles away from Manhattan in Jersey City, NJ. The activities include lectures, guest speakers, group projects, and off-site visits. Summer Instiute is the face-to-face component for your summer course work. Please see this gallery of pictures.
Every student participates in course work and guest lectures, but each year offers something different. In the first year of Summer Institute you will get oriented to your cohort and the cohort program. In the second year you will take your comprehensive exam. In the third year you will present your portfolio and defend your dissertation proposal.
The upcoming Summer Institute dates are:
July 15-July 19, 2019
July 13-July 17 2020
July 12-July 16 2021
During the Summer Institute we have events beyond the campus. Past activities have involved behind-the-scenes looks at the Liberty Science Center and the Museum of the Moving Image. We have also held our own conference, the Technology, Entrepreneurship, and Education Summit (TEES).
