The College of Education offers both a master’s and Ph.D. program in Educational Research and Evaluation (EDRE) to prepare graduates for research and faculty positions as well as leadership roles in research organizations in Ohio and around the world. This program offers students courses in several areas—research design, testing and measurements, questionnaire development, statistics, computer programming, evaluation, and qualitative research. The student-faculty ratio is quite favorable, and there are opportunities for students to interact with faculty and to become involved with both new and ongoing projects and research in the United States and sometimes overseas.
Low minimum course requirements allow students to design individualized programs with courses across the University. In particular, we often have student taking courses in higher education, mathematics, psychology, and computer science. In addition, many students develop areas of interest within various specializations of teacher education.
Our students come from a variety of undergraduate disciplines. While there are no specific requirements, we seek students with a reasonable background in mathematics (calculus and linear algebra) or in an area closely related to mathematics. Statistical and/or computer skills are desirable.
