BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - Montana State University is offering a doctorate in education designed to prepare graduates for careers in research and as faculty members.

MSU has funding for up to 10 on-campus students pursuing a doctorate of philosophy in education.

Associate professor Tricia Seifert says the new Ph.D. program is the path for students seeking to impact education policy and practice through research, while those interested in practical application would pursue a doctorate of education. MSU has offered an education doctorate program for nearly 60 years.

The Ph.D. program was approved by the Board of Regents in March and the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities granted accreditation to the new program in August.

A group of 12 students began the program this fall.

Applications to the program are due each May.
