School of Education and Social Policy

Northwestern University's School of Education and Social Policy has developed an innovative interdisciplinary doctoral training program to develop a cadre of scholars trained to conduct relevant and reliable research on pressing policy and practice issues in education. This Doctoral Program in Education Sciences is intended for students who want to pursue a research agenda that focuses on practical questions in U.S. education from a rigorous interdisciplinary perspective. This program seamlessly integrates training in statistics, evaluation, cognition and learning, and education policy. Program hallmarks are interdisciplinary teaching and mentoring of fellows by core and affiliated Northwestern faculty engaged in education-focused research.
