University of Pittsburgh School of Education

PhD Programs

The School of Education is making an impact on leaders within educational institutions and settings as well as those conducting research about education through our Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees.

Our PhD is a full-time program and focuses on research-based careers. Students will participate in research apprenticeships, assist their faculty advisors in activities such as conceptualizing research projects, collecting and analyzing data, and writing for grants as well as publication in peer-reviewed journals. Many training experiences occur during the day, such as required courses, brown bag and colloquia meetings, research meetings with advisors and project teams, and collecting and analyzing research, making it possible only as a full-time degree.
