When you’re a Teachers, Schools, and Society student, you’re searching for solutions to enduring problems in education.
Our shared assumption is that schools are shaped by larger societal forces like politics, culture, economics, and moral values. In other words, schools are not situated in a societal vacuum. So we enlist perspectives from history, philosophy, sociology and cultural studies to explore the inter-relationships between schools and society. Our program is for people who want to acquire, discover, and apply expert knowledge from these disciplines to address and resolve pressing problems in schooling, and in education more broadly.
Graduate students specializing in Teachers, Schools, and Society can pursue a Master of Arts in Education (M.A.E.) Degree in Curriculum & Instruction.
We are part of a vibrant community of students and faculty both in the Teachers, Schools, and Society program and throughout the School of Teaching & Learning.
