PhD in EFPP
The concentration in Educational Foundations, Policy and Practice (EFPP) of the School of Education at the University of Colorado Boulder offers an outstanding faculty and program devoted to the critical examination of the relationships between education, society, and government, with special emphasis on problems of race, gender, sexual diversity, social class, and multiculturalism. The program stresses analysis and evaluation of education theory, practice, and policy, by drawing on history, philosophy, law, and the social sciences. Its foundation is critical scholarship, which examines educational institutions within broad social, historical, political, cultural, legal and economic contexts in the United States. Program faculty offer courses on topics such as social, cultural, historical and philosophical foundations of education; policy analysis; evaluation; and curriculum theory. Additional related courses are available in other programs of the School of Education and in other departments of the University. The program is designed to train scholars, teachers, evaluators, and policy analysts for careers in academic institutions and agencies at the state and federal levels.
