Certificate of Advanced Study in Cultural Foundations of Education

The Certificate of Advanced Study (C.A.S.) in Cultural Foundations of Education is a highly-demanding, interdisciplinary program created to support fundamental inquiry into the nature of education. Students draw on disciplines of history, philosophy, and sociology to analyze such issues as inequality, disability, the relationship of popular culture and mass media, and the philosophy of multiculturalism and racism in education.

C.A.S. students must complete 60 graduate credits, at least half of them from Syracuse University.  All C.A.S. students must take a qualifying examination and complete a project, which usually coincides with one or more field experiences.
