“It is a well-deserved recognition for the CISL program, which ensures both accessibility and quality for doctoral education regardless of students’ location. That is why it attracts students from all over the world as well as across our country.”

Jaekyung Lee, Dean, Graduate School of Education

“We are very pleased to be recognized for our innovative education PhD program that is now available online, as well as on campus. Our focus on the relatively new Learning Sciences creates opportunities for research aimed at improving educational practice across the lifespan and learning contexts. With only one required course, the 62-credit hour degree allows advisors and doctoral students to design a customized program to reach specific research goals. I think those are the ‘wow’ factors that led to our #5 ranking in the country.”
