About The Program
Dr.Se-Kang Kim, program director
The psychometrics and quantitave psychology program at Fordham University focuses on the quantitative, research-oriented commonalities relevant to most of the behavioral sciences and their applications in industry, education, and the health sciences. Students in the psychometrics and quantitative psychology program gain familiarity with a repertoire of statistical, psychometric, and other research techniques, as well as skills in computer utilization.


Upon graduation, psychometrics and quantitative psychology students should be able to function in applied and basic research academic and industry jobs s such as (but not restricted to) academic research and teaching, psychometrics, consulting, program evaluation, etc. Sophistication in measurement and evaluation can provide employment opportunities consonant with the current social emphasis on increasing standards of performance, equality of opportunity and accountability inthe delivery of human services such as mental health services, education, andselection and training programs in industry.

Psychometrics and quantitative psychology students are expected to demonstrate substantial grounding in general psychology, in addition to their areas of concentration in psychometrics. They regularly interact with faculty and students in the other psychology doctoral programs.
