Student Research

Students of the Program undertake research within a broad span of interests. Some students arrive at Teachers College with well-developed research interests while others find their focus within the work they do in the Program. Notwithstanding the origin of their interests, all students in the Program engage in a range of endeavors contextualized within classrooms, studios, communities, museums and theoretical frameworks, working individually or in groups, and exploring a range of traditional and contemporary methodologies.
