Graduate study and research in the College of Education place primary emphasis on bridging the gap between theory and practice--between research and the everyday educational and human problems that confront students, teachers, counselors, curriculum workers, administrators, and other professionals in related fields. Practice and internships coupled with research constitute the components of our advanced programs. Interdisciplinary study is encouraged when appropriate.



Master's students may attend full or part time; there is no residency requirement for a master's degree. Full-time students can complete most master's programs in a minimum of four academic quarters. Doctoral programs require a three-quarter continuous residency on the Athens campus and can be completed in a minimum of three academic years.

All professional education programs are fully accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The Counselor Education Program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP) and CORE.

Detailed information concerning graduate programs is available from the Office of Graduate Studies, College of Education, Ohio University, McCracken Hall 124, Athens OH 45701-2979.
