Policy by Department

TC is launching a new Department of Education Policy and Social Analysis (EPSA) to serve as a central academic hub for the College’s education policy work across all phases of educational and human development, with both a national and global focus. EPSA will accept graduate students beginning Fall 2011. • The new department’s core areas of expertise will include early childhood education, charter schools and vouchers, home schooling, K–12 education reform, higher education policy, law and education, and the role of nonschool factors (such as demographic change, public health, and human services) in affecting education achievement and equity. • EPSA will be chaired by Jeffrey Henig, Professor of Political Science and Education, and will house four master’s and doctoral programs: Economics and Education, Politics and Education, Sociology and Education, and Leadership, Policy and Politics.
