The Harris School of Public Policy offers an Education Policy Specialization that is open to any graduate student at the University of Chicago. The Specialization is designed to provide students with the background, concepts, and tools necessary to understand and address policy problems in education. The specialization’s curriculum will afford students opportunities to expose themselves to the multiple disciplines and fields that speak to global and domestic education challenges, such as labor economics, public economics, development economics, development psychology, behavioral science, mechanism design, sociology, and education and child studies.
In addition to the course requirements, students electing the specialization will be encouraged to participate in Committee on Education (COE)-sponsored events, as well as events sponsored by student organizations such as EPSA (Education Policy Students Association).
