patientpatient Posted October 21, 2011 Share Posted October 21, 2011 (edited) Hi, all. I am really passionate about education reform and policy. So I am interested in taking a Masters in Ed Policy. Any idea about the job market in this industry? I'm not exactly sure how I would like to apply my experiences to a career. Maybe as a consultant or working at an innovative charter school (I guess this is part of my question... what sorts of jobs do Ed Policy students pursue?). Also, do you think I would be better off getting a Masters in Public Policy with a focus in education as it is a more general degree (but also twice as expensive as these programs are two years long)? You can answer my questions without reading on, but here are some of the schools I am interested in: For Ed Policy within a SOE I am looking at Harvard, Stanford, Penn, Michigan and George Washington. Looking into the Ph.d program at Florida State (they don't offer Masters and I might have a shot there as my research interests are a strong match and I am guessing admissions selectivity isn't quite as intense as the above mentioned schools... but just guessing). I don't know how well-funded this program is at FSU, but I am in-state. Also looking at the MPP at Chicago, Georgetown and Vandy (MPP program through Peabody school, so kind of a hybrid program, I guess). Thanks.
