The mission of Stanford’s Graduate School of Education is to develop the knowledge, wisdom, and imagination of its students to enable them to take leadership positions in efforts to improve the quality of education around the globe. To this end the GSE offers two degree programs for students. They include the Master of Arts (MA) in Education degree, and the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) of Education degree. Each year the GSE has approximately 400 MA and PhD students pursuing degrees, with 225 graduates annually joining the 12,000+ alumni that impact the field of education in a variety of organizations around the world.
Our MA degree is a 9 or 12 month intensive program for students who wish to study a particular field in education. There are 9 programs of study including 3 joint degree programs.
Our PhD degree prepares students to be leaders in education through rigorous research training under the guidance of an assigned faculty mentor/advisor. Graduates often assume roles as university faculty, senior-level education leaders, policymakers, and researchers. Explore our PhD students who are currently on the job market.
Given the evolving economic reality, there are new ways to partner with EdCareers and connect with GSE students and alumni.
Post short-term/internship positions
Beyond posting full-time positions, we have students and alumni looking for short-term positions or projects (ranging 1-3 months). You can post these types of positions by categorizing the posting as “Short-Term/Fixed-Term” in the EdCareers Portal.
Post virtual/remote positions
Do you have opportunities for remote work? Students and alumni are willing to take on remote positions. Please indicate “Remote” in the position headline when you post. Students are also looking for remote internships. Please indicate “remote” and tag these opportunities as “internships” when posting on the Portal.
Host an Industry Insight Session
Are you interested in getting in front of a group of Stanford GSE students? Industry Insights are an opportunity to host a live zoom session for our students/alumni where employers share their career path(s), teach students about an industry and job function and share any upcoming openings.
