Students in the PhD concentrations share a common set of course requirements with graduate credit hours required as shown below. Doctoral committees may require students to take additional hours to fulfill degree requirements.
Students must submit to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, an online graduate application to the Office of Graduate Admissions. Students must also submit the Theory and Practice in Teacher Education Departmental Application for Graduate Study. Applicants must submit verbal, quantitative, and analytic writing GRE scores that are equal to or higher than the 50th percentile, based on the norms in effect at the time the test was taken.
An applicant with either a verbal or quantitative subtest score that is less than the 50th percentile will be expected to submit a proportionally higher, off-setting second subtest score. The Education, Literacy Studies program is offered by the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
