Educational Theory and Practice: Philosophy of Education Stream PhD

Formerly known as Curriculum Theory & Implementation: Philosophy of Education, PhD.

Our Philosophy of Education Stream of the Educational Theory and Practice (eTAP) program will encourage you to explore the deeper questions related to individual, cultural and environmental aspects of education. You see or dream that the world can be transformed, and in the process expect to also be transformed as well.

Our eTAP programs are intentionally broad to be inclusive of the diverse range of fields of study that could be explored through the lens and dynamics of theories and practices in education.

This multi and interdisciplinary understanding promotes inquiry into your own specific interests and backgrounds within your classes through discussions, additional readings, papers, projects, etc., under the guidance and mentorship of your supervisor and committee.

You will receive close academic mentorship with one or more faculty members who have expertise in areas of research that resonate with your own areas of inquiry.
