Social and Comparative Analysis in Education Programs

Teacher teaching a class

The Social and Comparative Analysis in Education (SCAE) programs at the Pitt School of Education are focused on a holistic review of education, with a special emphasis on comparative, international, and developmental education.

Fundamental questions asked in our programs include:

  • How do social relationships within and beyond the school affect instruction and learning?
  • How do markets and incentives affect educational organizations and actors?
  • How does culture and the intergenerational transmission of culture affect educational processes and outcomes?

As an SCAE student, you will create an individually tailored plan of study based on your unique strengths and interests. This plan of study will include interactions with diverse peers and the opportunity to conduct original research and engage in experiential learning.

Our graduates work in a broad range of academic and professional fields. They hold leadership roles in international and development organizations, education policy-making bodies, consulting and evaluation firms, nonprofit organizations, and innovative schools.
