Cultural Studies of Education Foundations, Master’s of Science, Track 1

The graduate programs in Cultural Studies of Educational Foundations (CSE) at the University of Tennessee represent a unique and challenging interdisciplinary experience. The programs’ intellectual identity emerges from a post-disciplinary orientation which includes coursework and research across the traditions of anthropology, history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. Academically based community service, community based participatory research, and philosophical, ethnographic, critical race, and feminist inquiry in the programs’ coursework address fundamental issues in education and relations of power. Students in the programs join an intellectual community committed to issues of social justice as well as theoretical, methodological, and discursive work. Faculty encourage students to collaborate and to study and research across disciplinary boundaries. Graduates of the program teach in Cultural Studies and Social Foundations of Education in higher education and or conduct work in these areas in applied educational, social, and political settings.
