A major in educational research allows students to take coursework in statistics, measurement, program evaluation, survey research, computer applications, qualitative research, institutional research, or policy research.

Program Academic Regulations
A program coordinator will serve as a point of contact to all students enrolling in the online program track. Students will be assigned advisors from the current faculty members in the Educational Research unit. The program coordinator will hold an online orientation each semester that will serve to introduce all programmatic requirements. Using iCollege as the official delivery system for the online classes to provide real-time voice communication between students and the program coordinator, this orientation will provide new students with an overview of the program, a projected schedule of course offerings, and an in-depth introduction to the master’s project requirements.
