If you have a deep interest in the methodological, theoretical, and ethical procedures and challenges inherent to social science research and evaluation, this is a program for you. Our students contribute to the methodological and theoretical development of qualitative research and program evaluation. Our program prepares research methodologists and inquirers to study and develop theories and methods for conducting empirical and conceptual social science research and evaluation in education, cultural studies, humanities, and other social science fields. 

The Qualitative Research Program at the University of Georgia is an international leader in the study and teaching of qualitative inquiry. Our program is supported by a multidisciplinary faculty of scholars dedicated to improving professional practice and scholarship through active collaboration and critical self-reflection in the use of a broad range of qualitative methods. Besides being a renowned center for scholarship and pedagogy in qualitative and mixed methods approaches, the program is committed to cultural, intellectual, and methodological diversity and fosters the development and implementation of its students’ and faculty’s unique epistemological perspectives. Graduates have the knowledge and skills to design, critique, and implement high quality research and evaluation studies, are proficient in a variety of research methods and theoretical perspectives, demonstrate the ability to effectively communicate the findings from qualitative studies to intended audiences, and are able to design and conduct a study using qualitative methods in real-world settings.
