The Master’s in Education with a concentration in Educational Evaluation and Data Analysis (EEDA) prepares you to work in K-12 school districts, universities, and non-profit organizations performing organizational and institutional research, data analysis, and program evaluation.

K-12, college, and university educational systems and established non-profits are awash in data from students, faculty, classrooms, and local program sites. The EEDA concentration prepares you to formulate and answer questions about program trends, academic achievement, and institutional effectiveness by overseeing data systems and applying analysis processes in specific contexts. Upon graduation, you will understand theory and methods, as well as possess practical experience and ethical awareness to meet the demands and challenges of working with data and evaluation in real-world educational and non-profit settings.
