About

The Measurement, Evaluation and Research Methodology program offered by University of British Columbia is dedicated to advancing the science and practice of measurement, program evaluation, and research methodology in the social and behavioral sciences (e.g., Psychology, Education, Quality of Life Studies, Health Studies). 

Overview

The graduate program in Measurement, Evaluation and Research Methodology (MERM) offered by University of British Columbia have been contributing to its international reputation as a leader in the field. Our students and faculty have done research in human and health services, psychological, educational, community and health settings. 

The essential difference between the MA and MED in MERM is that the MED is wholly course based whereas the MA requires two fewer courses but the completion of a master's thesis. As such completion of a master's thesis is viewed as a prerequisite for the pursuit of doctoral studies in most institutions.

What makes the program unique?

The MERM Program is the only Program in Canada, and among a short list in North American, in which the students are awarded a degree in "Measurement, Evaluation, and Research Methodology"; that is, a degree in the discipline of MERM rather than a degree in some other social or health science discipline with a focus or specialization in MERM. Being awarded a MERM degree, with interdisciplinary foci, makes our students unique in an international setting.
