    What type of credits can reduce a Ed.D to 30 credits?

    I notice that some schools list Doctorate of Education degrees requiring ~60 credits. Some clearly state that if one completed a 30-36 credit Ed.S after a 30-36 credit education degree, then one only needs to complete 30-36 credits to finish the Ed.D.

    I will soon finish an MAT, but took additional graduate education courses taken at 3 different schools. Between the MAT and extra courses, I will have 48 credits in education courses. Few are EDU prefix, but are all in teaching /education subfields. Could I use these extra credits to reduce a ED.D to 42 credits? Or take an additional 12 credits and get it down to 30, without having an Ed.S?

    I'd think this would entirely depend on the receiving institution, and that how they approach this would vary too much for you to get anything out of a one-size-fits-all answer.

    Steve is correct. The only courses likely to be in common across programs would be courses in research design , quantitative methods and qualitative methods.
