The MS in Research Administration is designed to benefit research practitioners, including those currently working in higher education, government agencies, and independent foundations, as well as those who seek to begin a career in research administration. Students will examine how the research enterprise is organized and led across the US, and internationally. Both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors will be examined to highlight any similarities and/or differences. Students will also learn about the management of sponsored research programs in areas related to finance, information technology, and legal, ethical, regulatory, and compliance considerations.
To foster career development, we designed this program to align with practitioner expectations, as well as with desirable outcomes identified by major associations, including the National Council for University Research Administration (NCURA), the National Grants Management Association (NGMA) and the Research Administrators Certification Council (RACC).
*This is a 12-course degree program, with classes offered online. All undergraduate majors are welcome to apply for start dates in the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters.
