Master of Arts in Education:
Foundations of Education
About the Program
The Foundations of Education program is intended for individuals who want to pursue particular questions, ideas or aims through graduate study in the field of education.
The program blends core coursework with a series of topical seminars, enabling students to create an individually designed theme to guide their study. A key emphasis in the program is the development of a critical perspective on the social, political and structural arrangements of formal education and study of the ongoing quest to achieve both equity and excellence for all individuals in a civil democracy.
Students meet with their faculty adviser frequently to develop and revise their Plan of Study.Â All students complete a capstone project; a thesis option is available. An exit interview is required.
