Graduate Certificates

University of Southern Maine

The Certificate of Graduate Study in Applied Research & Evaluation Methods is designed for students and practitioners who want to learn to use data effectively on the job and in the community. The certificate emphasizes data acquisition, data analysis and presentation, choosing and applying statistical techniques to real world problems, and practical application of analytical tools.

The certificate of graduate study may be pursued as a 12-credit program of study, without concurrent matriculation in a degree program, or to augment a Muskie School master’s or doctoral degree program. There is no mathematics or statistics prerequisite.

The certificate in Applied Research and Evaluation Methods can be completed entirely over the Internet. Most classes are available to matriculated, certificate, and other interested students.
