As the Director of Graduate Education for the Iowa State University School of Education and on behalf of the School of Education Graduate Studies Committee and the Graduate faculty, I welcome you to the web pages for our graduate programs.
These pages will allow prospective students to explore the exciting options available for graduate study in the two divisions within the School: Higher Education and Teaching, Learning, Leadership, and Policy. The School offers graduate degrees (Ph.D., M.S., M.Ed., M.A.T.) as well as several graduate certificate programs. Prospective students, we take pride in our ability to provide you with excellent opportunities to work closely with faculty to pursue a program of study specifically tailored to your interests. We encourage you to explore our programs and degrees using the links on this page!
Current students will find information regarding programs and procedures, scholarship opportunities, assistantships and graduate student organizations. Of interest to both prospective and current students are the links to faculty research interests and areas of methodological expertise.
The School of Education is committed to rigorous programs that provide students with strong foundations in education and preparation for their future goals, whether these goals involve faculty positions in research universities; leadership roles in higher education, K-12 schools, educational agencies, or state agencies; or enhanced classroom pedagogy.
The School is also committed to research and teaching that advocates equal educational opportunity for all students, we seek to foster an environment that welcomes and encourages discussion about issues of race, class, gender, culture and disability. Furthermore, as a department with a history of serving international graduate students, we are attuned to the power of educational conversations that often occur across national borders. Diversity is central to our work.
