The Graduate Interdisciplinary Specialization in Quantitative Research Methods (GISQRM) is a specialization program open to all graduate students at OSU. Requirements for the GISQRM are designed so that students are exposed to cross-disciplinary methodologies and research paradigms. Emphasis is on data analysis, and the specialization culminates in an independent, advanced quantitative research project resulting in a paper suitable for submission for publication. Strong foundational background in quantitative methodology is expected as described in a later section. The GISQRM plan of study is included with the materials submitted in support of this specialization. Click on the link below for a list of courses and start your program today!
