The International Educational Development Program - Doctoral Concentration (IEDP-D) is a unique cross-program concentration open to all Ph.D. and Ed.D. students enrolled in any one of PennGSE’s doctoral programs. The IEDP-D concentration will appear on your GSE transcript, provided you complete all requirements. Additional benefits include:

Research. Opportunities to share and receive feedback on your research during the monthly IEDP-D Proseminar. Also, IEDP-D helps to support international field research placements over the summer.
