Graduate Student Research

Graduate students at the College of Education frequently publish papers and present at conferences during their time as students. Graduate faculty work with their mentees to facilitate scholarship when possible, and they help to encourage the professional development of graduate students who are interested in establishing a scholarship record.

We encourage you to reach out to our current graduate students to get a feel for the professional climate at UK and the academic rigor you will find here.

Students in all of our departments are conducting cutting edge research and participating in exciting field experiences. Here are a just a few of their accomplishments:
