Graduate Study

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers graduate degrees - including Master of Science in education and Doctor of Philosophy - in a variety of areas. Our Graduate students supplement their coursework with professional activities, such as assisting in research, teaching, and working in field sites under staff supervision. Research and teaching assistantships, fellowships, and scholarships are available in limited numbers for highly qualified students.

At the advanced graduate degree level, we prepare master teachers, curriculum specialists, teacher educators, educational researchers, directors of training for business and government, and specialists in educational technology.

Each graduate program is a collaborative effort between the faculty and the graduate student; each program is designed to reflect the aspirations of the student, as well as the knowledge and skills necessary to assume leadership roles in school and in universities.

Prospective graduate students are encouraged to explore the available programs of study and review information about graduate admissions. For more information about financial aid, the campus, and the community, see the frequently asked questions (FAQs) section of this website.
