Doctoral Education Programs and School Choices


Scui

Question

Hi guys, 

I am applying for Doctoral programs mainly in Higher Education and International Education.

I got accepted into Higher Education Management from University of Pittsburgh ( PhD. program ) and Higher Education from University of Rochester ( Ed.D program ) and two upcoming interviews from George Washington University's Ed.D. program in Higher Education Administration and George Mason University's PhD.program in International Education.

I want to stay at D.C. where I got my Master's degree because I know many people here, but I also want to go outside of D.C. to explore more new places.  

Is there any more from the higher ed field can give me some advice about choosing the programs between Higher Education and International Education and which university is the best in this field? 

Thank you so much! :)

So this doesn't answer your question at all really, but I went to Pitt for my undergraduate degree and was deciding between their MAT program or Boston University. Ultimately I chose Boston, but like you, it was just because I wanted to experience something new while I can! The people I spoke to within the School of Ed at Pitt were very helpful and they have a high standard for admittance. Pittsburgh is an awesome city and is gentrifying its surroundings (this may be a negative for some) quickly. It's definitely much cheaper compared to D.C. and offers a lot of the same type of stuff. Three great sports teams, some incredible museums (both art, science, and history), and a true melting pot of cuisine! It would be a fine place to spend the next 5+ years while pursuing your doctorate!

Thank you so much for your advice! I will think about it very seriously.
