Ideally located in the nation’s capital, George Washington University’s Doctoral Program in Curriculum and Instruction (C&I) prepares education leaders to improve preK–16+ education in local, national, and international settings. The coursework encourages critical thought and creative work focusing on curriculum, instruction, and research, with additional courses and learning opportunities that link teaching and learning, policy, and evaluation to students’ substantial prior experiences. Students can meet national leaders in education and participate in internships that expand horizons. The program focuses on how curriculum and instruction can be constructed and applied to educational reform and diverse student populations. Students build research skills and study collaboratively, while staying grounded in the realities of schooling. Doctoral students become part of a community that links scholars with practicing professionals, policymakers, and educational organizations in Washington, DC, and beyond.
