Ph.D. in Cultural Foundations of Education

Program Overview

The Cultural Foundations of Education department supports interdisciplinary work and encourages the use of diverse research approaches including empirical and philosophical work, historical research, and policy analysis. The doctoral degree program is designed so that students both receive a broad education and develop disciplinary tools without being restricted to a narrowly specialized program of study.  Students can choose a particular concentration—history of education, philosophy of education, or sociology of education—or they can work between these areas. Within these concentrations, students may want to focus on particular areas of research such as:

  • Disability studies
  • Popular culture
  • Urban education
  • Gender and education
  • Popular culture
  • Race, racism and education
