Academics at Prescott College
Limited Residency PhD in Sustainability Education
The Prescott College Limited-Residency Ph.D. program in Education with a concentration in Sustainability Education views education broadly, as social learning that occurs in settings that are both formal (educational institutions, for example) and non-formal (such as families, community events, media, and businesses). The term “education” is considered to mean both the act or practice of educating or being educated and the study of education as a process.
Within the central theme of sustainability education, students create individualized proposals for formal course work and a practicum based on an educational vision. Finally, Ph.D. students undertake an action-oriented dissertation, demonstrating passionate scholarship as well as its application in the sustainability education niche.
