Courses are scheduled during the months of June and July in such a way that the program may be completed in three summers. Students take a concentration in research methods courses, become well-versed in research, evaluation, and statistical methodology, and acquire the skills and knowledge to be able to conduct statistical analyses and evaluations for educational and state agencies. Heavy use is made of the Research Consulting Labs on campus to familiarize students with statistical software and to provide them with the skills to use statistical programs with a high degree of competence.

The program may be started in any summer. The student should apply no later than April through the UNC Graduate School for admission into the Applied Statistics and Research Methods Masters Degree Program.
