The Certificate in Quantitative Educational Research Methodology is designed for researchers, graduate students, teachers, and professionals interested in developing applied skills needed for quantitative analysis in educational research. The certificate program is structured to accommodate students from a variety of backgrounds in the social and behavioral sciences with the aim of developing advanced quantitative skills that go beyond the requirements of a typical non-quantitative graduate degree program. Successful completion of the coursework will prepare students to answer complex research problems using an array of sophisticated statistical techniques. This program emphasizes application of statistical methods as opposed to theory and does not require any prior programming or research experience.
