CFE graduate programs are designed to foster critical inquiry into the cultural and social forces that shape issues of education, broadly defined. Drawing from the humanities and social sciences, we train our students in interdisciplinary analysis, critical theory, and diverse methodological frameworks.

Much of the department is working remotely for Fall 2020; please call or email us to schedule a virtual appointment.
