Please note that we are not accepting applications for our Collaborative Leadership, Ed.D. Program for the 2013-14 admission year.
The Education Department's instructional programs are designed to engage students deeply in educational theory, research, and practice for a multilingual, multicultural society. We embrace sociocultural perspectives on schools, society, and research in order to emphasize the centrality of language, community, and social contexts in teaching, learning, and education. Our primary objective is to improve educational opportunities for low-income and culturally and linguistically diverse students, and the teachers who serve them.
We offer four instructional programs. Our Education Minor offers undergraduate students opportunities to prepare for careers in teaching or affiliated professions (e.g., educational research or social policy work). Our highly regarded Master’s Degree with California Teaching Credential prepares over 100 teachers each year by linking theory and practice for high quality teaching. Our Ph.D. Program develops education researchers whose commitments to educational equity and cutting-edge theory are expanded and deepened through coursework, research apprenticeships, and professional mentoring. Our Ed.D. Program supports educators who enter our program in order to build on their prior and current work to become expert leaders in the education field.
