  • Policy development
  • Identifying the factors that influence costs
  • Workloads
  • Examining teaching
  • Admission
  • Grading practices

This master's program can be completed with or without a thesis. Our program ensures that our graduates have 'real world experience' through practicum experience(s) in an institutional research office.


Graduates of the program can work at all levels of higher education from community colleges to universities.
