With a focus on research, practice, theory and experiential learning, the Education Studies Department enables students to understand and re-imagine education as a vital social process that extends far beyond schools.
We investigate the sociology, political economy, cultural foundations, philosophy and history of education. We mentor students as critical educators, transformative intellectuals and public pedagogues.
Students gain practical and research experience in educational settings, often studying abroad, and during their senior year conduct original research over our two- semester capstone course.
The Education Studies major is interdisciplinary and complements these majors or minors: psychology, communication, English, peace and conflict studies, and history.
