What can I do with a certificate in Program Evaluation?
The demand for program evaluation is growing. Public and private funders want to see a return on their investments. Funded programs across a variety of industries are being pressured to justify these investments to stakeholders through program evaluation – by assessing program processes and implementation, measuring outcomes, and informing ongoing program improvement.
This certificate program will provide the concepts and skills professionals need to:
- identify and engage key stakeholders for evaluation purposes;
- design and develop appropriate data collection instruments for program evaluation;
- articulate the theories and major issues surrounding contemporary program evaluation, and;
- diagnose a program's strengths and limitations and communicate and use evaluation results to improve a program.
