The Master of Science in Applied Quantitative Methods and Social Analysis requires students to complete 32 total semester hours (34 with optional co-op). The coursework is structured around two interdisciplinary core courses, a concentration consisting of three courses, and an additional 12 semester hours focused on methodological and statistical applications of core skills. The curriculum is designed to offer methodological and statistical rigor and opportunities for applied experiences.
The Core Curriculum
The two interdisciplinary core courses in research methods and statistical analysis serve as a foundation for the Master of Science degree in Applied Quantitative Methods and Social Analysis. These courses examine: the research process; how data is collected, stored, and manipulated; and how to analyze information using regressive techniques. Students leave the core curriculum with a working knowledge of research methods and statistics on which to build.
The breadth of applied research methods and social analysis highlights the many avenues that data professionals can implement their expertise. Students in the program can choose from five concentrations to hone their degree to a specific interest.
