The graduate certificate program in Data Analysis is designed for students interested in acquiring knowledge and skills related research methods and statistical methods. This information will be useful for students pursuing doctoral studies in psychology or related fields as well as students in or entering the workforce who are interested in jobs requiring data analytic skills. Upon completion of the graduate certificate program, students will be able to:
- Recognize and understand appropriate use of major research designs and statistical methods of the field.
- Write clear and precise summaries of data analysis and findings when presented with raw data and prepare a power point presentation to succinctly communicate program evaluation findings to a mock community agency.
- Demonstrate the ability to effectively analyze and synthesize information in multiple formats (e.g., written narratives, bulleted summaries, oral presentation).
To be admitted to the certificate program in Data Analysis, students must have a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 in their overall and/or upper level coursework and official GRE scores with a 151 verbal score and 150 quantitative score. Students currently enrolled in the M.A.: Psychological Sciences graduate degree program at USF St. Petersburg campus or with previously conferred graduate degrees in a related field may potentially be eligible for an exemption of the testing requirement upon the pre-approval of their graduate advisor.
