Interdisciplinary graduate program

exploring diverse factors that profoundly influence education
Offering the only master’s and doctoral programs of this kind in Oklahoma, we explore how historical, philosophical, socio-cultural, political, and international forces shape research, educational processes and experiences—as well as how education shapes society. Diversity is a core focus, as is qualitative inquiry. Graduates become higher education professors, K-12 educators, community activists, educational leaders, policy analysts, and more. To ensure wide access, our course delivery include online, face-to-face and hybrid approaches, as well as select courses on Tulsa and OKC campuses.
