Data analysis capacity and quantitative skills are valuable assets to many doctoral students across a variety of fields. This minor is designed to provide advanced quantitative skills and experiences, particularly in applied social science research areas. Students take 12 hours of advanced course work in the research, measurement and statistics concentration area in the Department of Educational Psychology. This minor allows doctoral students to document and market their capacity in quantitative methods along with their regular major area.
Prior to beginning the minor, it is assumed that doctoral students will have taken an intermediate statistics course and a research methods course in their own program or elsewhere that are equivalent to EPSY 6010 and EPSY 6020. Alternatively, they may take EPSY 6010 and EPSY 6020 directly prior to starting the minor.
