This folder contains the doctoral dissertations of students in the International Education doctoral program in the College of Education.
During the 50 year existence of the doctoral program associated with the Center for International Education at UMass Amherst almost 300 students have successfully completed their doctoral degrees. The majority of their dissertations will be available on this site..
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 programs to working with education of all kinds, especially in conflict or emergency contexts.
Dissertation abstracts from 1969-2019, indexed by author, topic, and country can be found in the document link here. http://scholarworks.umass.edu/cie_diss/1/.
