Graduate Programs

A career in education or human services is for those who want to change lives for the better, who want to help others find the good in themselves, and who find fulfillment in taking positive actions in their communities. A graduate degree opens more doors and presents more opportunities for you to find a fulfilling career. Our programs combine research, theory, and practice to prepare ethical and culturally-aware professionals. Come, learn, and grow with us!


As our country strives to improve its educational system, measuring the affects of programs and policies, and assessing their success is increasingly important. Become part of the solution by learning to interpret statistical and measurement models. At SIU, you’ll pursue a broad but rigorous methodological program that incorporates standard statistical software. You’ll specialize from there to discover your own specific interest and applications.
