Curriculum and Instruction PhD
The program offers a broad and intensive investigation of issues in educational theory and practice. Theory and practice are each seen as necessary extensions of the other and as establishing criteria by which the other can be judged. The PhD program emphasizes cutting-edge theory in curriculum and instruction and rigorous standards of research in the construction of new knowledge about education. Doctoral students are encouraged to engage in active programs of research, both with faculty and independently, that demand strong conceptual understanding of contemporary issues in education and a flexible array of responses.
