Core Ph.D. courses will be available through the summer residency on an annual basis. All elective M.Ed./Ph.D. courses will not necessarily be available on a yearly basis.​

Elective Courses​

Once Ph.D. students have completed their first summer residency they will complete three 3-credit graduate level electives. Generally, Ph.D students will select courses from the current Graduate Studies in Education course offerings​​. 

Note: EDUC-5157 Survey of Research Methods, EDUC-5186 Understanding Education, and EDUC-5196 Research Project & Seminar are core MEd courses and are, therefore, not available to PhD students.
