Doctor of Philosophy


Globalization and technology have changed the way we work today and the connections between education, work, and the economy have become more evident now than ever.

Communities, states, and entire nations now depend on coherent systems linking education, work, and the economy to educate, sustain, and develop the current and future workforce. In turn, a new generation of professionals who understand these connections is needed in academia and other venues to produce new related knowledge and policy development. A doctorate in Career and Workforce Education aims to prepare this new generation while opening the door to emerging and rewarding career opportunities in this field.
