Prepare for a career as a college and university administrator, institutional researcher, policy analyst, and faculty member.
Coursework emphasizes research and theory including in-depth exploration of an academic discipline which is typically selected outside the School of Education.
The program has relatively few required courses, allowing you more freedom to specialize in areas of interest. There is also a strong set of inquiry (methodology) courses required. A strong background in inquiry is essential for careers in institutional research, policy analysis, or as faculty.
Doctoral dissertations are required to have a strong theoretical orientation. Ph.D. students conduct dissertation research in a wide variety of topical areas, but many of them select research aligned with the strengths of the faculty.
