Program Description:

The Comparative and International Education (CIE) program is a global, cross-cultural, and transdisciplinary program that prepares graduates to work in and with schools - both in the U.S. and internationally - as agents of change in classrooms, schools, and educational systems as a whole. The Ph.D. degree program in Comparative and International Education (Ph.D. CIE) prepares students for research, scholarly inquiry, and advanced professional careers in the field of comparative and international education. A hallmark of this program is the bridge between educational theory, research, and practice. The Ph.D. degree will build on and combine the strengths of the M.Ed. in Globalization and Educational Change program by being practical, research-oriented, and policy-focused, while adding a robust theory-oriented and research-driven component. The M.Ed. in Globalization and Educational Change and M.A. in Comparative and International Education , have a mixed instructional format - on campus, online, off-site - which is designed to accommodate our diverse body of global students (many of whom are professionals in the field and work internationally). We invite students from various backgrounds from both the United States and abroad. In addition to traditional classroom and school settings, our students come from (and should expect to move upon graduation to) government offices, ministries of education, research/policy institutes, and international development organizations.
