Graduate School of Education

The University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education partners with schools, universities, and communities to expand educational access – especially for those underserved by society. Through rigorous research and innovative programs, we develop new knowledge, and transformational teachers and leaders in pursuit of educational opportunity.

Programs are offered leading to the Master of Science in Education (M.S.Ed.), the Master of Science (M.S.), the Master of Philosophy (M.Phil.), the Doctor of Education (Ed.D.), and the Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Our degree programs offer a range of professional preparation for those seeking to begin or advance in a career in education. The School’s programs are organized in four academic divisions — Applied Psychology and Human Development; Foundations and Practices in Education; Language and Literacy in Education; and Policy, Management and Evaluation.
