Quantitative Psychology

Quantitative methods for Psychology include the development, evaluation and application of novel quantitative methods in a number of broad areas including measurement, research design, statistical analysis and graphical statistics. The American Psychological Association explains "What is quantitative psychology?" here.

Our quantitative methods program officially commenced in September 1, 2009, offering M.A. and Ph.D. graduate degrees in Psychology with a specialization in quantitative methods. Our faculty and graduate students are actively involved in researching, teaching, and consulting, and offer training opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students.
