International and Multicultural Education Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate & Graduate Academic Programs

The Ed.D. in International and Multicultural Education (IME) is dedicated to understanding formal and informal education within diverse sociocultural, linguistic, political and economic contexts. Based on principles of equity, social justice, and human rights, the program critically addresses the realities of education within and beyond the borders of public schooling in the United States and around the world. 

Students outside the IME Department are able to develop a four-course sequence of IME courses in consultation with the Department Chair that fulfills the minor in IME requirements. Coursework can focus on issues of human rights; racial justice; or language and culture in education. Alternatively, students may opt for a sampling of courses across the IME curriculum that introduce key thematics in the field. Please note: the within-department concentrations of “Human Rights Education” and “Language and Culture” are only available to doctoral students officially enrolled in the IME Department.

Program Learning Outcomes


Graduates of the Ed. D. program will be able to:

  • Demonstrate a nuanced and integrative knowledge of human rights education and activism; race and ethnic studies; and language and culture.
  • Identify, describe and critique critical social theory; critical and decolonizing pedagogies; theories of race, gender and intersectionality.
  • Identify and employ methodological tools based in critical approaches to quantitative and qualitative research methods with a focus on community engaged scholarship.  Describe and apply alternative paradigms, such as participatory action research, teacher action research, testimonio, and critical ethnography.
  • Synthesize contextual understandings, reflective analysis, theoretical frameworks, and methodological training to produce a doctoral dissertation.  Design and conduct research that contributes new knowledge to the academic field.
