Foundations of Education

Students in the Foundations of Education program acquire not only theory and research skills, but also tools that enable critique and creative responses to the social, cultural, political, and economic issues that surround the cultural reproduction of schooling. The Ph.D. is the only degree offered in this program.

Ph.D students must take at least 69 hours of postmaster's credits, of which 30 hours may be dissertation hours. Please see the Foundations of Education web site for specific requirements.
