New online certificate in Mixed Methods Research launching
Ohio University’s Patton College of Education is launching the online certificate in Mixed Methods Research this fall. Applications are already being accepted for this fully online certificate designed to equip the use of mixed methods of research in practical applications.
Mixed methods research refers to the systematic integration of quantitative and qualitative approaches to research to answer multifaceted questions. The comprehensive discipline provides opportunities for the inclusion of a variety of theoretical perspectives into the process of research.
Dr. Yuchun Zhou is the certificate’s program coordinator. “Mixed methods is widely used in diverse disciplines, such as health sciences, business, social sciences, etc.” she said. “This new certificate will help working professionals who are interested in applying mixed methods in practice to solve complex problems.”
Interested individuals need to have essential knowledge in quantitative and qualitative research prior to application. The certificate program will not introduce the two research methods but focuses solely on how to integrate quantitative and qualitative methods and data.
