Course content

The quantitative psychology master’s program aims to prepare students for applied and research careers as statisticians, psychometricians, data analysts, and quantitative psychologists in education, business, government, and other organizations. Goals are to help candidates develop research skills to keep up with recent theoretical and practical developments affecting their profession; data analysis skills used in organizations; skills related to interpretation and communication of statistical output; analytical skills for statistical decision-making; and test construction and validation skills with item response theory. The degree should give graduates an edge in their chosen career or as a Ph.D. applicant. Half of the program’s students come from other states (from Arizona to Michigan to Massachusetts to Florida) or other countries (including Canada, China, India, Japan, South Korea, Slovenia, United Arab Emirates, and Ukraine).
Graduates holding a master’s degree in quantitative psychology may analyze empirical data obtained from scientific research and/or conduct scientific research on psychometrics or statistical phenomena. They also might provide program evaluation and statistical consulting services for government, businesses, hospitals, schools, and other data-collecting agencies. Other job activities could include developing and evaluating mathematical models of psychological phenomena or educational and psychological tests. About one-third of students continue on to doctoral programs in measurement, quantitative psychology, social psychology, or literacy studies.

Data analyst
