Academic residencies give you the opportunity to connect and collaborate with faculty members and hundreds of your peers. Required for doctoral students and some master’s students, residencies are designed to enhance your learning at key points in your academic development. Face-to-face residencies are held in locations throughout the United States and abroad, while virtual residencies are hosted online for eligible PhD and EdD Advanced students.*
Walden students often find their residency very beneficial and speak highly of their experiences:
“My first residency was in Minneapolis in 2010, and I was very nervous about attending. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how the residency would benefit my program. I am extremely glad I gave the residency experience a chance. Not only did I learn about research skills and APA formatting, but I also developed professional relationships with other scholars in my field.”
For current students seeking additional information about Walden’s upcoming residencies, see the calendar of locations and dates.
