Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies

Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction – Specialization in Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies (Teacher Education Focus)

This program is designed for students who wish to be involved in the preparation of preservice teachers, either as university faculty, researchers, and/or program directors.  

The track blends exploration of theoretical research, program design, and clinical practice. Three required courses are typically paired with practical experiences and internships, such as teaching courses for preservice courses or supervising student teachers through the Office of Teacher Education.

Developing expertise in teacher education is often an especially beneficial career move as well, as the majority of university faculty positions in departments and schools of education involve working with preservice teachers.
