Institutional Research Graduate Certificate

The Post-Master’s Certificate in Institutional Research (CPIR) is for academics who want training in Institutional Research in preparation for working in an IR Office at a postsecondary institution, a government agency, or a private education organization. The program consists of 18 hours and may be taken as part of a doctoral program. Of the 18 hours, 12 are in the required core (6 hours are in research methods and 6 hours in IR seminars), plus a 3-hour Higher Education (HIGHERED) or an Educational Research (ED REM) elective and a 3-hour capstone. Students may transfer up to 5 hours of post-Master’s work into the program with the approval of the advisor.
