Graduate programs

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction offers graduate programs at the Masters’ and Doctoral levels. We offer both full and part-time programs, on campus and in a range of community locations. Our department is home to 28 full-time faculty members, and we offer excellent research assistant and teaching opportunities with world-class scholars.

The Department of Curriculum & Instruction offers MA and PhD programs focused on educational research, with coursework intended to provide foundational knowledge enabling a focus on researching in a specific area. As supervisory capacity is limited, you are advised to contact the Graduate Advisor or Graduate Secretary regarding potential supervisor availability. Check faculty members’ webpages for their expertise and research interests.

We also offer M.Ed. Professional degrees that are responsive to the needs of participants, based on location and specific research interests. Our programs use a combination of onsite, online, and hybrid course models providing professional learning in curriculum leadership. Cohort offerings are announced in August and begin the following summer term. Check the program area webpages for cohort availability, as these change every year.

If you are interested in proposing a new cohort, either on campus or in a community location, please contact our Graduate Secretary for further information.
