The College of Education has two departments: the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and the Department of Educational Studies. Each department provides both master's and doctoral degrees. In addition, each department offers several graduate specializations. Students normally select both a department and a specialization when seeking a graduate degree. Some graduate programs lead to a professional license; others prepare students for scholarly careers in educational research and/or higher education. All COE graduate programs encourage cross-disciplinary work and build expertise in discovery, learning, and engagement.
Education graduate programs are administered by the departments with the assistance of the Education Office of Graduate Studies. In addition, the Graduate Studies Leadership Team (GSLT) provides college-level oversight and guidance with respect to graduate study issues, including recruitment, enrollment, and assessment.
