Finally, as part of the broader Hispanic-Serving and Minority-Serving Institution at UNT, our program is positioned particularly well to serve the needs of these communities both in supporting doctoral students to develop their research expertise and in serving the learners within these communities across the DFW area and beyond.
Graduates of the Learning Sciences program will be positioned to take positions in universities, non-profit research institutes, school district offices, informal learning spaces (e.g. museums, after-school programs), or consulting. Upon acceptance to the program, faculty will meet with students to understand their goals and career considerations.
