Master of Arts in Educational Policy Studies

The Master of Arts in Educational Policy Studies provides you with the skills necessary for success in positions at research firms, think tanks, research foundations, and government research offices. In the classroom, you’ll balance training in research methods with deliberations on the foundations, design, and implementation of educational policy. You’ll also gain understanding of modern research and research methods through both coursework and direct research experiences, and pursue an apprenticeship/internship under the guidance of a faculty advisor.
