Description:The Department of Social Justice Education (SJE) offers a multi- and interdisciplinary graduate program developed from the past programs of History and Philosophy of Education as well as Sociology in Education. This department provides students with critical understandings of the social, historical, cultural, political, economic, and ethical contexts of education, broadly conceived. Based on the diverse ntellectual traditions of the humanities and social sciences, the department is committed to multi- and interdisciplinary studies in education, with a focus on equity and social justice from a variety of perspectives including history, philosophy, sociology and political science.
The SJE program is concerned with both theoretical and empirical problems regarding in/equity in educational spaces, broadly conceived. The EdD degree program is distinct from the PhD in that students are encouraged to orient towards applied and theoretical dimensions of professional educational practice understood as knowledge, teaching, and learning which takes place within or beyond schooling.
