Curriculum Studies & Global StudiesGo to Curricuum

Curriculum Studies have been the linchpin of our department. In this area we distinguish ourselves as scholars who raise hard questions about the nature of curriculum. We do this work through history and other social sciences along with theory and curriculum planning. This work extends well beyond the borders of the United States to educational systems and efforts all across the world. Scholars in this area have a strong international identity and focus and draw students from all over the world.
