UC Irvine offers a fully funded PhD program in Education. Students receive quality mentoring, relevant coursework and opportunities for research apprenticeships on major projects. The program consists of basic coursework forming a strong foundation for all students before they select a specialization in learning, teaching, cognition and development (LTCD), educational policy and social context (EPSC), or language, literacy and technology (LTT). After selecting a specialization, students conduct independent research under an advisor. All accepted students receive payment of tuition and fees, health insurance and a living stipend.
