Language, Education and Society, Doctor of Philosophy
The PhD in Language, Education, and Society is a research-intensive environment studying how language and social processes are related to educational issues. Students and faculty are engaged with issues of language, culture and learning in school and non-school settings and believe that some of the most difficult problems in education and society can be addressed through research and scholarship.
Work with faculty on research projects and pursue your own research interests with faculty support.
Courses prepare students to be scholars, researchers, teacher educators and activists who understand the complexities of language, culture, learning and education.
Program is flexible to meet students’ interests and goals and allows doctoral students to specialize their studies.
