The Evaluation program prepares graduates to shape the strategic direction of organisational projects and programs and design effective social interventions. Designed by the Centre for Program Evaluation, this program offers students a rare opportunity to develop the evaluation skills needed to inform programs and policies with reliable evidence, support communities and drive organisational change across a range of sectors and activities.

International students are welcome to study this course. However, please note that this course is not available to international students who require a student visa to study in Australia as it does not meet the onshore study requirements and it is not registered with CRICOS.

Course aims

Relying on proven methods and theories, students of this program will learn how to design and conduct sound program evaluations, develop and improve effective and efficient interventions addressing complex social issues, measure their impact and monitor their activities. You will gain the ability to increase an organisations’ evaluation capacity and, overall, support critical decision-making processes.

What is distinct about this program is that it is aligned with professional evaluation standards and practices, to give students the skills they can immediately apply to their work contexts. Whether you are currently working in an evaluation role, supervising evaluations, or seeking a career change, this multidisciplinary program can fit your needs and prepare you to confidently engage in real-world evaluation practice.
