Course info


The primary mission of the Educational Research Program is to offer a quality graduate program that prepares scholars to critically engage with educational research and evaluation, develop appropriate and innovative research designs, and contribute conceptually sound analyses to the overlapping fields of education, the social sciences, and the health sciences.

The program in educational research offers the PhD in educational research and post-master's certificate in qualitative or quantitative research. There is an EdS offered in conjunction with educational psychology. There are also two MA focused areas of study offered in collaboration with educational psychology. These areas are: learning and evaluation (thesis and non thesis options) and program evaluation (non thesis only). The degrees require coursework in quantitative methods, psychometrics, program evaluation, mixed-methods, and qualitative methods. A student may choose to focus in quantitative methods, program evaluation, psychometrics, mixed methods, or qualitative methods at the PhD level. Field experiences are required as part of the program.
