Program evaluation is the process of using social science research methods to study, appraise, and help improve programs in nonprofit organizations, educational systems, governmental departments, and businesses.
The ability to conduct a research-based evaluation is valuable preparation for leadership roles in the workplace. The course provides training and certification in program evaluation to both current students and working professionals.
Students in this certificate program learn how to use their social science knowledge to better understand the role of groups in social change, increasing their effectiveness in social action work. They develop analytical skills and learn methodological tools that are relevant for both the workplace and graduate study.
