University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education (Penn GSE)
The Penn Graduate School of Education seeks students who are interested in promoting a deeper understanding of educational issues and contributing to societal change. Bringing diverse experiences to the Penn GSE community, students are both learners and agents of change within the university and the surrounding Philadelphia neighborhoods. The curriculum places a strong emphasis on the interactive relationship of theory, research, and practice, often focusing on urban education. Students engage in extensive fieldwork throughout their studies. Penn GSE offers programs leading to the Ph.D, Ed.D., M.S.Ed., and M.Phil.Ed. degrees.
