Advanced Quantitative Methods in Education Research
The UCLA Department of Education (in the Graduate School of Education & Information Studies) and the UCLA Department of Psychology offer a program of interdisciplinary doctoral training dedicated to producing world-class quantitative educational researchers. The multi-year doctoral program in Advanced Quantitative Methods in Education Research or AQM is intended for students who want to become expert methodologists who are well trained in substantive education areas and educational policy issues. AQM Program fellows will become the next generation of education scientists able to conduct rigorous educational research that advances knowledge in the field and provides useful information about important educational issues to practitioners and policymakers.
The AQM program brings together faculty from Education, Psychology, Bio-statistics, Social Welfare, Public Policy and Sociology to offer advanced training in research design, statistics, and educational policy issues, and to provide practical research experience with complex, real-world educational issues and problems.
