Michigan State University's graduate program in program evaluation prepares professionals for a career in program evaluation. Specialists in this rapidly growing field are in high demand, and our program provides both the theoretical knowledge and real-world experience to make our students successful.
We offer a Master of Arts Degree and a Graduate Certificate in Program Evaluation. All courses are delivered entirely online by accomplished and respected evaluation professionals. As a student in this program, you’ll consult with faculty, exchange ideas with classmates, and complete knowledge and skill-building activities—all at locations and hours that are most convenient for you. Also as an M.A. student, you will complete a two-semester supervised practical application course; you’ll work alongside evaluation practitioners in a professional evaluation setting to gain first-hand experience applying your learning from prior classes. Most importantly, in the end, you will have developed the skills needed for a successful evaluation career in local, state, and federal agencies, as well as the private sector.
All of the courses are open to individuals interested in taking one or two courses for the purpose of professional development.
