About

The Department of Curriculum and Instruction offers several master’s and doctoral degrees that prepare graduate students for careers in teaching and leadership positions that promote equity and excellence in the education of diverse communities.

Overview

The Cultural Studies in Education (CSE) program is a critical interdisciplinary program that studies social, cultural, philosophical, and historical issues in education. The CSE program addresses social and cultural theory, as well as narrative, qualitative and ethnographic methods to study education. This graduate program approaches Cultural Studies in Education in a range of contexts from the funds of knowledge of family and community settings, to the social, cultural, political, economic, and contested struggles of public urban schooling.

CSE faculty and students recognize the power of alternative ways of knowing and being and stress the significance diversity plays in education.
