The Quantitative Methodology program offers training in measurement, assessment, and statistics. Our major goals are to develop and disseminate advances in the theory and practice of:
Our faculty are leaders in their field, with expertise in areas such as:
Our graduates enjoy careers as faculty members in universities, as psychometricians in the educational testing industry, or as assessment coordinators for government positions at departments of education or in local school districts.
Almost all in-state students begin their studies at UGA paying limited tuition or fees. Please note that these amounts are subject to change and are meant to give prospective students an idea of the costs associated with a degree at the University of Georgia College of Education.
Students may qualify for a variety of assistantships, scholarships, and other financial awards to help offset the cost of tuition, housing, and other expenses.
Most graduate students at UGA are not assigned to a faculty advisor until after admittance. A close working relationship with your advisor is paramount to progressing through your program of study.
We encourage our quantitative methodology students to get involved in organizations such as the National Council on Measurement in Education, the American Educational Research Association, the Psychometric Society, and the American Psychological Association.
Most students are active in the Graduate Researchers in Educational Psychology student association, and eligible students may be elected to the Beta Chapter of Kappa Delta Pi international honor society.
Our students also benefit from a low student-to-faculty ratio. Faculty in the Quantitative Methodology program typically advise 3-5 students.
