PhD Program Overview

PhD Overview

Learn from the Leaders in Education

UCR’s Graduate School of Education prepares the next generation of thought leaders and researchers in education. Small class sizes allow you to closely collaborate with your peers and form apprentice-style relationships with your professors, who are themselves some of the leading education researchers in the world. During your time at GSOE, you’ll develop exceptional research, writing, and presentation skills: a highlight for many students is the opportunity to present their research findings at prominent national education conferences. Once you graduate, you’ll join a vibrant GSOE alumni network, and be prepared to enter a position in educational research, university teaching, local school leadership, or similar area.
