Doctoral Studies

The Urban Education Ph.D. program has been designed to prepare persons capable of applying current methodology, research and knowledge to the problems of education in a contemporary urban society. Concepts from education, urban policy planning, law, economics, psychology, public administration, sociology, nursing, and political science establish the framework upon which problems of learning and learning environments are examined.
