The International Educational Development Program - Doctoral Concentration (IEDP-D) is a unique cross-programmatic and interdisciplinary concentration for both Ph.D. and Ed.D. students. It has been designed for doctoral students who wish to develop both strong skills in a disciplinary area (e.g., human development, educational linguistics, ethnography in education) as well as cross-cultural and international skills based on field experience.
The IEDP-D is open to all students who have been admitted to a doctoral program in GSE. Students who are interested in the IEDP-D may add the IEDP-D concentration after joining PennGSE.
