The M.S. degree in educational research is designed for those who want to conduct research in schools and other educational settings. This program gives its students a comprehensive understanding of quantitative and qualitative research methods as they are applied to the study of education. Students can concentrate their research studies in a number of areas, including statistics, measurement, program evaluation, survey research, computer applications, qualitative research, institutional research or policy research.

About

Students are prepared to conduct research and evaluate programs in K-12 schools, colleges and universities, and other settings (i.e., government, healthcare, public health).

The Research, measurement and statistics program trains educational researchers. This program is composed of two research stands: quantitative methodology and qualitative methodology. Students choose one of these strands to become an expert in their chosen methodology. Those in the first strand use statistical methods to examine various aspects of educational policy and their influences on students. Those in the second strand often define education and its policies more broadly, examining social discourses that produce and reproduce social inequities.
