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, economic and international forces shape research, processes and experiences as well as how education shapes society. Diversity is a core focus, in addition to an emphasis in qualitative inquiry. Graduates go on to be higher education professors, K-12 educators, community activists, educational leaders, policy analysts, scholars and more. To ensure maximum flexibility, courses are offered in varied formats, including online, face-to-face and hybrid.
