History, Philosophy, and Policy in Education

Ph.D. in History, Philosophy, and Policy in Education – Specialization in Education Policy Studies

Help shape the future of education.

  • What can we do to boost school access and graduation rates to address racial and other inequities, and how can we balance school choice with the benefits of public education?
  • How do we best evaluate student and teacher performance, and how do we reform schools to improve such performance?
  • How can education law best be used to advance social justice and balance freedom of speech with the instructional mission of public schools?
  • How can schools best accommodate cultural differences and help shape the global, democratic citizens of the future?

These are just a few of the questions and challenges that education policymakers face in the 21st century.

In this Ph.D. program, you will learn how to research a range of educational problems and challenges, with a focus on justice and equality of opportunity, from kindergarten through graduate school, and from the United States to Indonesia.
