Graduate study in the School of Education is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills associated with mastering and critically analyzing scholarships in the field of education and, particularly at the PhD level, with the knowledge and skills associated with contributing to that scholarship. Students work with a collaborative faculty whose members combine nationally and internationally recognized senior scholars with a cadre of energetic up-and-coming junior scholars and whose overall scholarly productivity is among the top 20 of U.S. schools and colleges of education. 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.
Graduate MA and PhD programs are available in four general areas in the School of Education:
A PhD program is available in Research and Evaluation Methodology (REME). A joint PhD program is available in Learning Sciences and Human Development with the Institute of Cognitive Science.
This degree has course offerings in the Curriculum and Instruction in Math and Science offered online via distance education.
