Ed.M. in Education Policy
Our main master’s degree is the 33-point M.A. The overwhelming majority of our non-doctoral students enter this degree program. However, we offer the Ed.M for students who have already acquired an M.A. with at least some coursework with education policy content. The Ed.M. degree further develops students’ knowledge and skills by drawing on interdisciplinary policy studies, the social science disciplines of economics, law, politics, and sociology, and substantive content of policies and practice in early childhood education, K-12 education, higher education, law and education, and data analysis and research methods. The 60-point degree program of study builds on the required M.A. course sequence with additional work in a policy area relevant to the student’s interests. Up to 30 points of eligible coursework from another graduate institution or program may be applied to the Ed.M. degree.
In fall 2017, we are introducing a new specialization in Data Analysis and Research Methods.
