Departments and Degrees
Addressing Real World Change through Excellence
We are two departments united under the banner of knowledge, dedicated to challenging systems that create inequity in 21st century education and information fields.
UCLA Ed&IS students believe in imagination over convention. They see education and information as extrapersonal pursuits and approach scholarship with an eye on the universal potential of evolving how we learn, teach and research.
Department of Education
The UCLA Department of Education is forever championing diversity of thought, social justice, and the democratization of knowledge. It is our belief that education can transform and advance culture.
Department of Information Studies
The UCLA Department of Information Studies is a powerhouse in a vital field and a leading architect of the agenda for how information is disseminated and deployed in the 21st century.
UCLA has been a leader in the study of education practice and policy since its inception at the turn of the 20th century. Faculty members in UCLA Ed&IS not only conduct research at the forefront of their respective fields, but are also deeply committed to teaching and the preparation of future researchers, policy analysts, teachers, and administrators.
