A PhD in Curriculum & Instruction prepares graduates to assume tenure track positions at a university and to accept professional responsibilities that focus heavily on teaching and research. Scholarly interests for new students are matched with faculty expertise and research agendas to facilitate mentorship opportunities and to assist in engaging students in academic experiences throughout their programs. Students are required to meet a residency component, providing opportunities for immersion in the college community with a focus on scholarly efforts.
