Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation (EDMS)
DGraduate Degree Program
Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation offers graduate study leading to the Master of Arts or Doctor of Philosophy degrees for students with strong interests in research methods and their applications. Students pursuing Doctoral degrees in other programs may enroll in a dual degree program leading to the Master's degree in Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation, or there is also a 21-credit certificate program for doctoral students. For select undergraduates, there is a five-year Bachelor's/Master's program in Measurement, Statistics and Evaluation. Please note that for those PhD applicants who are hoping to receive a funding offer, you should adhere to the preferred deadlines on the program website and not the deadlines listed below.
Graduate teaching assistantships, research assistantships, and fellowships are available. The Department can usually aid students in locating part-time employment opportunities, both on and off campus, as well as providing funding from its own contracts and grants.
