The 12-credit Graduate Certificate in Data Collection and Management offers skills that can be used to begin or advance your careers in areas like market research, social policy analysis, education, health, politics, social services and more. Students learn to use SPSS, R, Qualtrics and NVivo for all their quantitative and qualitative research projects.
Since its inception in 2014, the program has been enriched by contributions from a network of local employers that offer guidance on course curricula, guest lectures, hands-on projects for students, as well as information to our graduates about how to advance in their fields.
Upon completing the Certificate, students may apply to go on and complete just 6 more courses to earn their Master of Arts in Social Research and Analysis.
