Graduate Minor in Program Monitoring and Evaluation

About the Graduate Minor

For people who fund, plan, or implement public health programs, their questions often include: What outcomes do you expect?; How will you know if you achieved the desired outcomes? and; For programs that have been implemented, what evidence can you provide that they are having intended effects? The graduate minor in Program Monitoring and Evaluation prepares students to develop, improve, and critique public health programs using quantitative and qualitative evaluation methods that can be applied in governmental or non-governmental agencies and in domestic or global contexts. In addition to required courses, students are encouraged to take additional advanced research methods courses and to build practical evaluation experience into their graduate studies by working with faculty on a community-based evaluation project as part of their integrative learning experience.

Admission Requirements
