Courses offered by the School of Education have the subject code EDUC, and are listed in the "Education [EDUC] Courses" section of this bulletin.

Aiming towards the ideal of enabling all people to achieve maximum benefit from their educational experiences, the School of Education seeks to continue as a world leader in ground-breaking, cross-disciplinary inquiries that shapes educational practices, their conceptual underpinnings, and the professions that serve the enterprise. The School of Education prepares scholars, teachers, teacher educators, policy analysts, evaluators, researchers, administrators, and other educational specialists. Two graduate degrees with specialization in education are granted by the University: Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy. While no undergraduate majors are offered, the school offers a number of courses for undergraduates, an undergraduate honors program, and a variety of tutoring programs.

The School of Education is organized into three program area committees: Curriculum Studies and Teacher Education (C&TE); Psychological Studies in Education (PSE); and Social Sciences, Policy, and Educational Practice (SSPEP).

In addition, several cross-area programs are sponsored by faculty from more than one area. These programs include the doctoral Learning Sciences and Technology Design Program (LSTD); two master's level programs: the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP) and the Learning, Design, and Technology Program (LDT); and the undergraduate honors program.

These program area committees function as administrative units that act on admissions, plan course offerings, assign advisers, and determine program requirements. Various concentrations exist within most of these areas. Faculty members are affiliated primarily with one area but may participate in several programs. While there is a great deal of overlap and interdisciplinary emphasis across areas and programs, students are affiliated with one area committee or program and must meet its degree requirements.

Detailed information about admission and degree requirements, faculty members, and specializations related to these area committees and programs can be found in the publication School of Education Guide to Graduate Studies and at

The School of Education offers an eight-week summer session for admitted students only. The school offers no correspondence or extension courses, and in accordance with University policy, no part-time enrollment is allowed. Work in an approved internship or as a research assistant is accommodated within the full-time program of study.
