Manderson is more than a place of learning—it is a place of ideas and innovation. By promoting independence of thought, and a rigorous academic curriculum, it’s no wonder that Manderson’s doctoral programs are among the most respected in the country.

Our Doctoral programs prepare candidates for roles as educators at prominent academic institutions and universities where the extensive research capabilities gained through an education at Manderson are a necessity. We facilitate these ambitions through a curriculum that, among its stated goals, requires from its students a dissertation, three to five years of research-intensive learning, and independent inquiry, along with close coordination with faculty who oversee the candidate’s doctoral program.
