This folder contains the doctoral dissertations of students in the International Education doctoral program in the College of Education.
During the nearly 50 year existence of the doctoral program in International Education at UMass Amherst almost 300 students have successfully completed their doctoral degrees. The majority of their dissertations will be available here.
The topics of these dissertations reflect the experience and research interests of the students. They also provide a good indicator of the commitment of CIE and its associated degree program to working with education of all kinds, especially in challenging or emergency contexts.
