Education and Public Policy
Description of the major
The Education and Public Policy (EPP) major offers an interdisciplinary program for mission-driven undergraduates who want to make a difference in society by building democratic participation and improving civic capacity in and through educational institutions and communities. This major is designed for students who want to work in education but do not want to become certified classroom teachers.
The EPP degree prepares students to enter professional careers in educational organizations, government, community development, public service, non-profits, consulting, philanthropy, and interest groups for the betterment of a diverse and democratic society. EPP students become discerning research consumers and policy analysts in order to work for educational reform and social justice.
