Master of Science in Cultural Foundations of Education

Program Overview

The Master of Science degree program in Cultural Foundations of Education is designed to foster and support fundamental inquiry into the nature of education. Students draw on history, philosophy, sociology and other disciplines to analyze such issues in education as inequality, disability, popular culture, mass media, the philosophy of multiculturalism and racism. Graduate students choose Cultural Foundations of Education because each program of study is individually designed.  Students may build their work around their own research interests and are encouraged to use diverse research approaches, such as combining philosophical analysis with empirical work or historical research with policy analysis.

Cultural Foundations of Education supports interdisciplinary work and students are encouraged to choose courses from across the broad spectrum of Syracuse University's schools and colleges, including Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and the College of Arts and Sciences. A Master's degree in Cultural Foundations of Education is designed for the student seeking a broad education with disciplinary competence as well as commitments to social purpose and academic excellence.
