Interdisciplinary by design, our classes draw on diverse methods of inquiry to analyze critically historical and contemporary educational methods in the United States and societies across the globe. We offer a comprehensive study of formal and informal educational institutions and practices and the ways they are affected by social forces.
We pull theory, research, and practice together to help you become more informed as a consumer and producer of knowledge in a variety of educational contexts. You will learn to ask questions about the relationships between knowledge, power, and identity in educational contexts and to re-imagine education and its contribution to a democratic society.
