The program has been designed to ensure flexibility, and students experience both multidisciplinary and discipline-specific research opportunities. The program begins with a set of common courses and proceeds to specialization through advanced course work and dissertation topics focused on areas of expertise that are supported by the research interests of current faculty members.
Graduates find work as researchers, teachers, consultants, curriculum developers, and administrators in a wide range of settings, including universities, school boards, government agencies, and international NGOs.
The Ph.D. in Educational Studies provides an integrative perspective on education by drawing on a range of related disciplines and research orientations.
Students develop scholarly and innovative expertise in at least one of three contexts of inquiry and awareness of all three:
- the broad context of culture and society;
- the international, national, and local contexts of educational leadership and policy studies; and
- the more specific contexts of schools and other sites of teaching and learning.
Students begin with a set of common core courses and proceed to specialization through advanced course work and dissertation topics focused on areas of expertise that are supported by the research interests of current faculty members.
