PhD in Educational Studies Program

At Lesley, we define educational studies as an interdisciplinary area of inquiry that includes the examination of the individual and social processes of learning and teaching in institutional and social contexts. The PhD program builds on Lesley's commitment to scholarship and generation of new knowledge, and recognizes the value of relating theory to practice. Each specialization requires an equivalent of 45 credits of coursework beyond the master's degree.
