The education policy and social foundations program, a rigorous two-year master's program, hasn't been available since 2009 but resumed this fall.
The policy-focused track enriches the educational leadership and foundations program by addressing the larger social, political, and cultural contexts in which schools operate. It will prepare students to contribute to education change, policy, and research on a local, national, and global scale.
"We want to increase our influence in terms of shaping the direction education goes, not only in Utah but also nationally," said policy committee associate chair Donald Baum. "We really see it as an opportunity for students who have interests in education and who want to make a difference in education but don't plan on being teachers or school administrators.”
