"I love all the detailed constructive feedback I get on my MA paper at each stage of the process. The comments are always helpful, and they enable me to constantly improve the quality of my research and writing. It's so wonderful (and rare!) that professors and TAs take the time to give such in-depth individual feedback. I feel really well-supported throughout the research process. The ICE faculty and TAs are fully invested in making our MA papers as strong as possible."

"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."

"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."
