Re: Question: Graduate programs in the History of Education

I believe the University of Chicago had a History of Education PhD program at some point as well.

Peter raises a good point: there are a number of universities that don't have a formal History of Education program or concentration exactly, but do have excellent faculty who could easily and gladly advise a strong history of education dissertation. That does muddy the waters a bit.

Re: Question: Graduate programs in the History of Education

At one time the University of Wisconsin-Madison had a History of Education program. Juergen Herbst and Carl Kaestle were among its luminaries, who held joint appointments in the Educational Policy Studies department of the School of Education.  Currently William T. Reese holds the Kaestle WARF chair of Educational Policy Studies and History; he teaches the subject in courses at all levels.

Re: Question: Graduate programs in the History of Education

The Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at the University of Toronto, used to have a History and Philosophy of Education PhD program. I’m a graduate of its History of Education program. I don’t think they offer this anymore. I wrote about this in a 2012 book chapter titled “Historicizing Comparative and International Education, and Internationalizing History of Education: A Personal reflection on Ruth Hayhoe's Call for Cultural Dialogue”. In Karen Mundy and Qiang Zha (Eds.), Education and Global Cultural Dialogue: A Tribute to Ruth Hayhoe, (pp. 69-82).
