COE to offer new M.Ed. in Evaluation, Assessment, Research, and Learning

Georgia Southern’s College of Education faculty did not just have educators in mind when designing the Master of Education (M.Ed.) in Evaluation, Assessment, Research, and Learning (EARL) degree program. The M.Ed. EARL curriculum provides students with rigorous training in research and learning that can be used for assessment and evaluation in a variety of settings. Scheduled to begin in Fall 2017, this program is useful for career paths that require tasks such as the collection and analysis of data, evaluation of programs and information, creation of assessment tools, and conducting research to make decisions based on empirical evidence.

Recent graduates of undergraduate programs in areas such as education, psychology, sociology, public and mental health, or justice studies are ideal candidates for this master’s degree. Another option for both these student populations and those pursuing a graduate degree is the graduate Certificate in Applied Research and Evaluation, a fully-online, 12-credit-hour program. This certificate offers students the opportunity to develop fundamental research strategies and apply this knowledge in various situations.

Candidates interested in the master’s program will complete a total of 36 credit hours. This fully-online program allows flexibility for working and off-campus students.  Graduates from this program will be qualified for social science research environments such as public schools and school districts, higher education institutions, private research and assessment firms, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies. M.Ed. program is pending approval from SACSCOC.
