Doctoral programs also are offered by the college in Counselor Education and Supervision, Couple and Family Therapy, Developmental Science, Education and Exercise Science and Nutrition. The doctoral program in Education (Ph.D. or Ed.D.) has a cross-disciplinary emphasis, which allows students a choice between two tracks: Institutional Analysis and Occupational and Adult Education. A dual major doctoral program in gerontology is offered in coordination with a doctoral degree from one of the following areas: Developmental Science, Education and Exercise Science and Nutrition. For more complete details, see the Graduate Bulletin online.

The College of HD&E offers seven master’s programs or program options online. Online programs make earning an advanced degree an option for anyone accepted into the college of Graduate and Interdisciplinary Studies. The programs are: Merchandising, Family Financial Planning, Gerontology, Youth Development, Family and Consumer Science Education, Dietetics and Leadership in Physical Education and Sport.
