The Qualitative Certificate Program was one of the most relevant aspects of my doctoral education. It puts you a step above the competition when it comes to positions with a research or methodological focus. I don’t know where I’d be academically had I not completed this program with UGA’s stellar faculty and it’s international reputation.
