Center for Science and the Schools (CSATS)

CSATS facilitates mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships between K-12 schools and Penn State science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) researchers and outreach professionals, with the goal of helping to strengthen K-12 science and technology education.

Comparative and International Education (CIED)

CIED is a dual-title degree (master's and doctoral) program that trains scholars who advance our basic knowledge about schooling and education around the globe. The dual-title degree program is offered through participating graduate programs in the College of Education and other graduate programs at Penn State. The CI ED program is designed to create opportunities for a range of people—administrators and policy makers in social welfare, health education, and development; school leaders; and scholars of education.
