Graduate Certificate Summary
DescriptionThe pressure to conduct research by federal, state and accreditation agencies is becoming more and more prevalent in a variety of settings including academia and health care. Research is increasingly reliant on mixed methods techniques.
The Mixed Methods Research graduate certificate is a stand-alone credential that can provide you with the research skills necessary to fulfill this very important need.
This certificate is well-suited for current and future doctoral students seeking to enhance their professional skills and training. Individuals with no training in mixed methods research, such as those from the allied-health professions, would also benefit from the coursework.
Distance Education OpportunitiesCourses may be completed online or at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
