The Western Faculty of Education has a long history in the field of comparative and international education. A graduate program in comparative and international education was first established by Douglas Ray in 1970. Many faculty members have been involved in teaching in this area since then, including David Radcliffe, Ernest Stabler, Suzanne Majhanovich, and Allan Pitman, all individuals who have played leadership roles in comparative and international education, both nationally and internationally. Current key internationalization faculty members who teach in this program include Goli Rezai-Rashti, Marianne A. Larsen, Katina Pollock, and Paul Tarc. The formal program went into 'hibernation' in the 1990s, but has recently been revived. Students can now enrol in a M.Ed. in policy studies and complete a specialization in Comparative and International Education.
