Educational Foundations



The Department of Educational Foundations offers foundations courses designed to prepare public and private school educators, administrators, and policymakers to meet the specialized educational demands of diverse social, political, and cultural contexts. Along with this charge to serve professional and pre-professional educators, the department seeks to develop in students from all disciplines a sophisticated understanding of the relationship between education and culture, as well as tools of inquiry and democratic interaction applicable throughout their educational experiences and in other contexts. The faculty considers mastery of critical, creative, and independent thinking, and a deep understanding of the role of educational institutions in society crucial to the success of a democratic society.
