Situated within the broader Teaching, Learning and Curriculum (TLC) area, the Teacher Education and Teacher Learning for Justice doctoral study option is designed for future researchers and leaders with commitments to advancing intersectional justice in teacher education and teacher learning who can engage with, examine, unpack and ultimately help transform educational systems. In this study option, we aim to center and learn various enactments of justice from communities, families, youth and teachers. This will be done through engagement in coursework, community partnerships and/or coaching within our teacher education programs, teaching, research (including community based design work), as well as theory building.

Only the teacher education programs lead to state teaching certification. 

To apply for this program, select "PhD or EdD - Curriculum & Instruction in the Graduate School's online application.   You will then choose Teacher Education and Teacher Learning for Justice – Curriculum and Instruction as your area of interest.
