The M.Ed. program in Research, Statistics, and Evaluation prepares students for advanced graduate study in educational research or employment as a data analyst with an educational research organization. Our graduates have been accepted into competitive doctoral programs or employed in school systems, state education departments, testing companies, or community colleges.
Components of the M.Ed. program include introductory courses that focus on the fundamentals of research design. It also includes elective course that assist students in acquiring a deeper understanding of and expertise in specific inquiry methods and analytic tools. By working with program faculty members, students learn to apply these methods to actual research problems in education.
Students in the program will: (a) develop an understanding of research design in education, (b) obtain expertise in quantitative and qualitative research methodology, (c) gain hands-on research experience with a faculty member, and (d) acquire professional traits and communication skills for academic and professional jobs.
The program is offered on-grounds in Charlottesville, Virginia. Applications are due by February 1st.

"Curry stood out to me because it felt like a community focused on development. There was a value placed on learning and growth rather than fixed classes taken to fulfill a requirement, and I honestly feel as if my professors care that I am learning valuable information. The RSE program specifically interested me because it covered a lot of broad topics, but the classes expected and the skills developed are broad enough to be applied in many settings. I also feel as if the classes are tailored to my interests; I am able to take on projects that interest me, and can find opportunities to develop the skills I am interested in. I am very happy in the environment created at Curry."
