What is the average age of new students?

On average, our M.A. students from previous years were in their twenties. Our entering Ed.M. and Ed.D. students tend to be in their late twenties and early thirties and above when starting the program. However, the age range across all the degree levels is quite wide.

What is the racial/ethnic composition of new students?

The racial/ethnic composition of every incoming class varies from year to year, but we strive consistently for a broad range of diversity in our community: race and ethnicity, gender and sexual orientation, religion, and many other features of background. For example, the incoming class of 2011-2012 was comprised of approximately 30% students of color, 45% White, 5% foreign and 20% other or students who chose not to respond.
