You need to identify a problem in education and select a research topic related to that problem. You probably have ideas on which topic you want to research, but in case you are not sure, you can check out GSOE faculty web pages. Our faculty members conduct research that covers a wide range of issues and topics in education. Pick one and send a 1-page (double or single spaced) introduction of your topic to us. In the 1-page introduction, we want to know (1) what is your topic, (2) why you are interested in this topic, and (2) why you think this topic is important in education.
