Education, Schooling, and Society (ESS) is an interdisciplinary minor that uses a liberal arts perspective to understand and influence education in society. If you're interested in the program, email Ann Primus Berends to make an appointment.

 

Interested in questions like these?

  • What is the purpose of education?
  • How does the history of the US educational system contribute to its present form and goals?
  • Are educational opportunities equitable for all?
  • What factors influence educational achievement?
  • How do students learn and which classroom and teacher factors influence learning?
  • How does education contribute to the development of the "good" citizen and the "just" society?

Education matters. Whether you aim to be a physician or phys ed teacher, an attorney or an accountant, a professional athlete or a parent, you will never be far removed from education in our society. 

Become an ESS Minor!

As of July 1, 2015, ESS co-founder Julie Turner retired from Notre Dame. Never one to sit around watchin' the paint dry, the professor began--on the day she "retired"--her role as lead co-editor of the American Educational Research Journal, the flagship publication of the American Educational Research Association. ESS owes a great debt of gratitude to Prof. Turner. The program would, quite literally, not exist without her and its other co-founder, Prof. Stuart Greene!
