There are two tracks at the Master's level of the ICE concentration offered by Stanford University :International Comparative Education (ICE) and International Education Policy Analysis (IEPA). The ICE and IEPA MA programs are run jointly and concurrently in the Graduate School of Education. The Master's ICE/IEPA program provides an interdisciplinary overview of the major theoretical and empirical issues in education, development, and policy, together with an opportunity for students to pursue a limited amount of specialized course work and reading in their areas of professional interests.
The admissions process does not distinguish between programs by setting quotas or limits for each program. In fact, students have the option, once they enter the program, to switch from one program to the other depending on how their interests evolve. An integral part of this program is the MA paper, which familiarizes students with trends, methods, and research findings in their areas of specialization. Students in IEPA are required to have a policy perspective in their MA paper, and, if appropriate, policy recommendations stemming from one's findings.
