This unique program enables students to focus on quantitative research, qualitative research, or an integrated program of study.
The flexible curriculum enables you to delve deeply into your chosen area of interest, from statistical modeling to ethnography, from discourse and narrative analysis to psychometrics and assessment.
Yet our program is rigorous enough to ensure that all graduates are able to meaningfully contribute to the study of social and behavioral research.
As a student you will have the opportunity to focus on methodology through theory and practice that cuts across a divide in qualitative and quantitative methods.
We are dedicated to advancing the understanding of social inquiry, especially with respect to the field of education, and we imagine these possibilities to be necessarily inclusive of methods typically disenfranchised from one another.
This 90-credit hour degree program requires students to spend at least two consecutive semesters on campus. Up to 30 credit hours may be transferred from another institution.
A 12-credit hour minor is also available to doctoral students majoring in other disciplines.
