Graduate Programs

  • Doctoral graduates at commencement

Graduate students in the School of Education work closely with a small, collaborative faculty. Faculty members include nationally and internationally renowned senior scholars along with a cadre of recognized up-and-coming junior scholars whose overall scholarly productivity is among the top 20 U.S. schools and colleges of education. As a testament to the distinguished level of scholarship, the School of Education has the nation’s second highest proportion of faculty members who have been named fellows of the American Educational Research Association (AERA).

The faculty share a commitment to two broad principles that unite graduate study across the School’s program areas: (1) evidence-based policy and practice and (2) democracy, diversity and social justice. For more information on the School of Education faculty, click here
