Advanced Quantitative Methods

The department offers coursework in basic and advanced quantitative methods across a variety of statistical techniques. The goal of this sequence is to develop student knowledge and expertise in different methodological tools in order to help students advance their own substantive area of research. 

The department also sponsors the HSDg (Having Statistical Discussions Group), a methodology study group which meets on a monthly basis to:

  • Discuss current directions in quantitative methods
  • Offer support to students and faculty with questions pertaining to analyses
  • Demonstrate statistical applications to research questions of interest to faculty and students

Certificate in Quantitative Psychology

Students enrolled in one of the graduate programs in the Department of Psychology may work toward a Certificate in Quantitative Psychology.

The certificate program trains students in the application of advanced methodological and statistical methods. It enables students to engage in high quality methodological practices within their substantive areas.

Upon completion of the requirements (see Psychology Graduate Handbook), the certificate will be recorded on the student's transcript and may be listed on the student's curriculum vitae.
