Graduate Qualitative Research Credential

VCU Graduate Credential of Completion in Qualitative Research

To meet a growing demand for well-trained qualitative researchers, both nationally and internationally, the VCU Graduate Credential of Completion in Qualitative Research (GCCQR) recognizes doctoral students who pursue an advanced course of study in qualitative research methods.

The GCCQR requires that VCU doctoral students in good standing complete 12 hours of coursework in qualitative research methods, to include a 3 credit introductory course and 9 credits of advanced course.  This is a great opportunity for doctoral students who plan to do a qualitative or mixed-methods dissertation.
