Higher Education Policy

The Higher Education Policy track focuses on the public policy functions of higher education. It analyzes how these functions are defined and realized (at the national, regional, international, and global levels); who makes higher education policies; what are the motivations for specific policy approaches and initiatives in higher education; what tools are used; and what their impact is. Students learn to analyze situations and problems in higher education policy and to develop solutions and implementation practices, also taking into consideration the connections between higher education policy and policies in other areas of economic and social life.
