Graduate School of Education
Inspire the Next Generation.
Make meaningful connections (Teacher). Develop policies to solve pressing education challenges (Public Policy Analyst). Boost team performance with cutting-edge strategies (Corporate Trainer). And so much more. GSOE’s Education, Society, and Human Development Undergraduate Program — taught by world-renowned faculty — will help you inspire the next generation.
We put research in your hands.
UCR offers research opportunities to all undergraduate students! This advantage catapults you to the “top of the list” for jobs and/or graduate school. Current GSOE research includes:
- Maximizing educational outcomes for traditionally marginalized communities
- Exploring the family context of youth with developmental disabilities or autism
- Creating new ways to teach academic words to those with “below grade level” reading skills — thanks to $1.4 million grant from the Institute of Education Sciences
“As a student in the GSOE, I have built memorable relationships with a diverse group of students, and supportive faculty and staff. The experience and skills I have developed through the program helped prepare me for invaluable internship and career building opportunities.”
