Department of Education, Culture, & Society

slc 

The Department of Education, Culture, and Society is one of the top social foundation programs in the country. It is committed to the study and pursuit of social justice in education using cutting-edge frameworks that address class, race, ethnicity, and gender in educational policy and practice. ECS offers Ph.D., M.ED., M.A., and M.S. program specialties in curriculum theory, anthropology, sociology, history, and the philosophy of education. The coursework is designed to help students construct a better understanding of patterns in educational inequality, while countering these inequities by creating an environment where working class students and students of color have, create, and promote equal educational opportunities.

Students completing a M.Ed. or M.S. have found the skills and knowledge useful for employment as educators and working in government and non-government agencies.

Students who complete the Ph.D. program are poised to take positions in research and teaching universities across the country.
