Our MA in Education and PhD in Education programs are designed for working professionals who are interested in linking theory and research to questions of significance in the field of education. Our unique approach to graduate study allows students in the general MA in Education and PhD in Education programs to design individualized programs that reflect their own interests and passions. Therefore, our students have considerable freedom to pursue academic interests encompassing a broad range of topics, preparing them to bring about significant change in education and to pursue successful careers in schools, universities, nonprofit organizations, and in research settings.
As a student, you will receive unmatched personal attention, interacting closely with responsive staff members and engaged, exceptional faculty. Our student and faculty populations are richly diverse, offering an ideal environment for exchanging ideas and cultural perspectives.

Most courses are four semester units which meet once a week at 4:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. Others are held on weekends.
