Educational Studies

When you pursue a doctor of philosophy (PhD)  in educational studies, you’ll explore how technology and societal trends have impacted public education, teacher education, and educational research.

You’ll learn how to assist students, teachers, and policy makers to help them thrive in today’s knowledge-based society. You’ll understand how to lead assessment, evaluation, and research and develop and implement strategies to address the learning needs of changing populations. Our program, which is part of our prestigious Teachers College, addresses the increasing role of technology in instructional design and curriculum development and the influence of demographic, economic, and political trends on the structure and culture of schools.
