Culture and Teaching Degrees and Programs


Culture and Teaching (CaT) engages the study of education as a cultural phenomenon. As a student in CaT, you will study a range of educational processes that take place both in and beyond the borders of schools, and explore alternative epistemologies and pedagogies. While CaT primarily engages schools and schooling, it also attends to families, neighborhoods, and international communities.

CaT is a politically committed program. Faculty and students are dedicated to seeking better understandings of issues pertaining to equity and social justice in both research and teaching. The track is interdisciplinary and collaborative, so your work as a student will encompass many different approaches, methods, and perspectives.
