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.

The mission of the PhD in Education is a multidisciplinary, collaborative program that develops scholars who, through research and praxis, work to ameliorate persistent gaps in educational opportunities.

Program features include:

1) Dedicated research and teaching internships in which students learn to become professors and researchers through the instruction and mentorship of established faculty members;

2) Structured opportunities for students to publish, present at conferences, and contribute to the grant writing process;

3) Established local and regional partnerships that provide the context for students’ learning and research efforts; and

4) 72 credits including dissertation with potential completion in 4 years.

Our students will be 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. The application deadline is February 15. For more information and to apply, please see our website at
