Like all doctoral programs, ours assumes that students have had:

  • Prior study in the areas in which they plan to specialize. As a result, students identify their intended area(s) of specialization on the application form.
  • If you have not completed prior study in the area in which you want to specialize: We recognize that some students develop an interest in Education after completing master’s studies in other disciplines. Such students are encouraged to apply to our program but should be prepared to complete some additional study so that they have the foundational knowledge needed to conduct in-depth, independent research in the field.
  • Previous independent research experience. As a result, applicants are asked to submit a sample of academic writing that demonstrates their independent research skills.

Meet these minimum academic requirements:
