Education Policy

Education Policy is a specialization within the PhD. program in the College of Education and Human Development. Study of education policy helps individuals understand how decisions are made at various levels of government, how decision makers use educational research and evidence, and how to influence the decision-making process. The program encourages students to hone skills that are needed for sound policy research and analysis.

The doctoral program is individualized and interdisciplinary. With the guidance of advisors, students plan their program of study to meet self-defined goals. Courses in education policy can be applied to a 24 credit hour Ph.D. specialization or to a 12 credit hour Ph.D. emphasis area.
