Admission Portfolio

Applicants to the PhD and EdD in Educational Research (EDER) programs are strongly encouraged to submit an Admission Portfolio. The purpose of the Admission Portfolio is to give applicants the opportunity to provide additional documentation which demonstrates their suitability and qualification for doctoral studies. The Admission Portfolio is especially relevant for applicants to the PhD and EdD programs who do not hold a thesis-based Master's degree. The portfolio may contain the following:

  • thesis (if applicable) - research methodology chapter only
  • writing sample
  • non-print materials, e.g. link to personal external website

The Admission Portfolios should include a table of contents and an executive summary that outlines the contents of the Portfolio.
