Masters and Doctoral Programs in Higher & Postsecondary Education
MA, Ed.M., Ed.D
The Higher and Postsecondary Education Program at Teachers College, Columbia University strives to create knowledge, knowledgeable practitioners, and practicing scholars concerned broadly with teaching, learning, and scholarly and professional development; organizational and institutional analysis, including abilities to probe and develop the structures, processes, policies, and technologies that comprise colleges, universities, and state and national systems of tertiary education; and social and comparative perspectives, with attention to the social, cultural, economic, and historical contexts of knowledge production, policy, and institutional development. We expect that students will work within and across these domains, developing programs of study that, though focused on particular themes and issues (e.g., policy, scholarly learning and careers, student development, professional development), will be informed broadly by a diverse array of ideas, perspectives, and questions.
