ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Urban Education program offers two graduate programs: a 36-hour Master of Education (M.Ed. Online) degree and a 64-hour Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The program is committed to developing leaders nationally and globally in urban settings, and is one of the greatest producers of urban scholars and researchers in the nation. Students work closely with the Center for Urban School Partnerships, and are able to work in the field of urban education through research, publications and outreach programs.
The online master’s degree plan emphasizes the integration of theory and practice, a strong knowledge base in evaluation, practitioner action-based research and community-based research. Foundational courses in the degree plan focus on theory of curriculum development, an analysis of teaching behavior and cultural foundations of education. The required urban education electives focus on issues, policies and the history of urban education. Opportunities for international travel, conference presentations and publications are available throughout the program.
