• Year 1 is focused by Duquesne’s educational leadership core;
• Year 2 is focused by directed study in problems of practice seminars that are cycled through research and development rotations;
• Year 3 is focused by dissertation of practice seminars and directed study focused on completing the capstone product of learning: a dissertation of practice.
