Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies at KU
The Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies* at the University of Kansas School of Education permits students to define a program of studies focusing on educational policy, utilizing courses in educational administration, higher education and the social and cultural studies in education. Typically, such programs entail a combination of courses in two of these areas, although it is possible to include all three. Graduate committees in this area must include faculty members from the various fields represented in each student's program. This concentration is interdisciplinary in orientation, and permits considerable flexibility in focusing on various aspects of educational policy.
*This program is a doctor of philosophy degree in educational leadership and policy with an emphasis in educational policy studies.
