Masters in Educational Psychology with an emphasis in Research, Measurement, and Statistics (M.S.)


The on-campus master’s program in Educational Psychology, emphasizing Research, Measurement and Statistics (RMS) focuses on a broad range of quantitative and methodological issues, including multivariate statistics, item response theory, hierarchical linear modeling, structural equation modeling, time series analysis, growth modeling, and Monte Carlo study.

RMS faculty are leading scholars who have earned international recognition.

RMS faculty not only engage in the development and application of cutting-edge quantitative research methods, but they are also committed to training the next generation of methodologists. Graduates with this specialization are in demand for higher education academic positions and school- and industry-based jobs in measurement and evaluation. RMS graduates hold positions at many major universities and research agencies.
