The Ph.D. in Education offers specializations in higher and postsecondary education, counselor education, literacy education, and special education. Our students are tasked with responding to the region's, nation's, and world's most persistent educational challenges, those that obstruct access, success, and equity in traditionally underserved communities.
Program features include:
- Dedicated research and teaching sequences in which students learn to become professors and researchers through the instruction and mentorship of established faculty members; and
- Structured opportunities to publish, present at conferences, and contribute to the grant writing process.
Our students are prepared to train future generations of students, contribute meaningfully to academic discourse, and influence policy-making with the intent of providing equitable outcomes for all educational stakeholders.
