Graduate Certificate in Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies
Offered through the College of Education, the University of Georgia offers qualified students the ability to earn an online graduate certificate in Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies (IQS). Designed to respond to the growing demand for national and international training in qualitative research, this program is ideal for researchers and non-degree students who would like additional preparation in designing and conducting qualitative studies, and who may be called upon to teach qualitative research methods in their institutions. The emphasis of the program is to provide an up-to-date overview of theoretical approaches to qualitative research, research design, data analysis and writing for varied audiences. Graduates from the IQS Certificate program have the knowledge and skills to design, critique, and implement high quality research and evaluation studies.
Students who are not currently enrolled at UGA should apply as a non-degree seeking graduate student. Requirements are based on UGA's Graduate School admissions standards for non-degree students.
Students applying to the Graduate School for non-degree status are not required to take entrance exams or to submit test scores and letters of recommendation.
