The M.S. in Cultural Foundations of Education is designed to foster and support a fundamental inquiry into the nature of education. Students draw on history, philosophy, sociology and other disciplines to analyze such issues in education as inequality, disability, popular culture, mass media, the philosophy of multiculturalism and racism.
We are a close community of scholars. CFE regularly sponsors opportunities for students and faculty to share their work, discuss current issues, and critique current articles. We believe that the social and personal aspects of the community are important for students to flourish.
Our interdisciplinary structure enables you to examine a variety of conceptual frameworks for evaluating educational ideas and practice as well as social policies. We encourage you to develop an awareness of the complexities, strengths, and weaknesses of different intellectual approaches and to develop special competence in one or more of these.
CFE graduate degree programs are designed for the student seeking a broad education with disciplinary competence, rather than a narrowly specialized program of study.
