The Ph.D. in Curriculum and Instruction is designed for advanced students who seek a focus on educational research and scholarship in local, national, or international settings. Through their research specialization, graduates contribute their expertise as faculty in careers in higher education, positions in research organizations, or other settings that require educational research.

Nondegree Status

In some cases, a student may wish to take a course(s) prior to being admitted to a degree program. In these cases, a person must be admitted as a nondegree student (sometimes referred to as a special student). No more than nine credit hours earned as a special student may be applied toward an advanced degree.

Advisor and Supervisory Committee

Once admitted to the program by the Graduate School, an advisor is assigned. The advisor assists the student in selecting the courses to be taken in the doctoral degree. The Program of Study with the list of courses is submitted to the Graduate School upon completion of nine hours (part-time students) or during the second semester (full-time students).

Individualized Program

Each student’s program of study is individualized with the approval of the major professor and the supervisory committee to optimize the student’s interests, expertise, and professional goals.
