Explore Our Academic Programs

The Stanford Graduate School of Education offers PhD, MA and MA/Teaching Credential programs in more than twenty-five areas of specializations. As you consider applying, we encourage you to explore all facets of the GSE—investigate the academic programs we offer, review the faculty profiles and fields of research, and read publications by our faculty members to gain insight into their research and to see if their interests align with yours. You are also encouraged to explore the Faculty Research Centers to learn more about our research initiatives, and to get a sense of what our students do after graduation, please visit the Stanford EdCareers webpage and its annual report.

As you consider applying to a program, ask yourself: why and with whom? What of that faculty’s work have you read and how do you think working closely with that person will advance your goals? To assist you in choosing the program that best matches your interests, you may also want to review Which Degree, Which Program.
