Social Foundations

Guoping Zhao, PhD—Professor and Program Coordinator

Social foundations of education is an interdisciplinary study of schooling and other forms of education. Ever since it began during the 1930s at Teachers College of Columbia University, social foundations has brought together scholars who situate education in historical, philosophical, economic, and social contexts. Using the tools of the humanities and the social sciences, social foundations scholars ask perennial questions, such as: What is the purpose of schooling in a democracy? What knowledge and values should be taught and to whose benefit? How are issues of race, ethnicity, social class, gender and ability manifested in schools? 

Drawing from history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, international studies, and other disciplines to teach their courses, faculty in the social foundations program area ask that educators reflect critically on the social and cultural dynamics in educational settings and how policy and practices might be improved. Students from other human service professions and other disciplines are invited to make similar use of the content of these courses for their professional practice.

Social Foundations

Guoping Zhao, PhD—Professor and Program Coordinator

Social foundations of education is an interdisciplinary study of schooling and other forms of education. Ever since it began during the 1930s at Teachers College of Columbia University, social foundations has brought together scholars who situate education in historical, philosophical, economic, and social contexts. Using the tools of the humanities and the social sciences, social foundations scholars ask perennial questions, such as: What is the purpose of schooling in a democracy? What knowledge and values should be taught and to whose benefit? How are issues of race, ethnicity, social class, gender and ability manifested in schools? 

Drawing from history, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, international studies, and other disciplines to teach their courses, faculty in the social foundations program area ask that educators reflect critically on the social and cultural dynamics in educational settings and how policy and practices might be improved. Students from other human service professions and other disciplines are invited to make similar use of the content of these courses for their professional practice.

PhD in Education with Social Foundation

The mission of the PhD in education with social foundations option is to educate scholars who have the abilities to discover, integrate, and apply knowledge about the culture in which the institutions called school reside, as well as the culture the institution creates. In the broadest sense, social foundations option is intended to educate scholars so they can disseminate new knowledge to educational, governmental, social economic and other scholarly communities interested in the advancement of the educational enterprise at the national and international levels.

To be considered for admission to the PhD program, applicants are expected to have an earned master's degree with minimum GPA averages of 3.50 on a 4.00 scale, and have career goals that match the program. Applicants must provide appropriate recommendations (three), present either a Graduate Record Exam (GRE) or Miller Analogy Test (MAT) score. Preferred GRE scores are: Verbal-151, Quantitative-150, and Analytic Writing-4.5.  For the MAT, a raw score of 400 is expected. A recent scholarly writing sample is also expected. For students with little or no background in education, additional leveling courses may be required.
