Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies at KU
Note: Effective Spring of 2021, the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies made major changes to the program structure and curriculum for its PhD concentrations. Please see the attached document for the most current and accurate information about the program. Pending a major upgrade to KU's entire website, we have not made changes to the individual links associated with the PhD in Policy Studies so information associated with program structure and curriculum links on the left navigation bar is incorrect. If you have questions, please contact Argun Saatcioglu (firstname.lastname@example.org), associate professor, before applying to the program.
