Doctoral Studies

Welcome to the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. We welcome you to our school and look forward to working with you as you achieve your doctoral degree.  

We are extremely proud of our doctoral students and strive to make your experience with us one that will empower you with the knowledge, skills, and associations necessary to succeed in your field. Experience conducting research that is rigorous, methodologically sound, and meaningful should reside at the center of doctoral study. As a school that embodies the connection between theory and practice we also hope that we will help you conduct research that seeks to improve the human condition.  

Our office, in cooperation with the Office of Student Affairs, plans events and holds numerous meetings during the course of the academic year where you will have an opportunity to meet other doctoral students at Steinhardt. Engagement will help you develop a network within the School’s doctoral community.
