The International Comparative Education (ICE) concentration is a multidisciplinary, international, cross-cultural program of training that places educational problems into an international and comparative framework.
"Before coming to Stanford, I never imagined that I would come to enjoy quantitative research methods. The excellent and supportive learning environment at the GSE enabled me to try new things, like learning coding and taking many quantitative methods courses. As a mixed-methods researcher, I focus on organizational change and social transformation in developing countries, looking specifically at the development of the non-profit sector."
Michelle Reddy, ICE Doctoral Candidate
"Beyond coursework, the ICE program offers students the unique chance to learn from and work with an exceptional set of faculty. The opportunity to work with leaders in multiple disciplines has contributed to my growth as a scholar in a way that would otherwise not have been possible."
Jamie Johnston, ICE Doctoral Candidate
"As a student in the ICE/IEPA program, I became familiar with education in a broader international context and developed skills in qualitative and quantitative research to analyze educational problems scientifically. Such an approach has proved valuable to me both as an education researcher and an observer of current events. More specifically, I thoroughly enjoyed the program’s diverse coursework in research methods, statistics, economics, international relations, and social entrepreneurship."
