Our department is home for the study of how people learn and how to help people learn. Much of our work focuses on K–12 schools, but we study education in other contexts as well, including museums and universities. Many of our students are preparing to work in schools - as teachers or as school psychologists; some prepare for careers in museums, and some for careers in education research.

Kailah Carden, who is pursuing her MA in Educational Studies, has forged an exciting and quite unique course of study. A year ago, she joined forces with Associate Professor Sabina Vaught to develop a new course. In addition, with the assistance of a number of department and university grants, she has been able to do some really exciting on-the-ground research related to the course material. Learn more >
