Evaluation is the vehicle of change. It has the potential to change the world. The online course is the exact same rigour and quality as a face-to-face course. You have an opportunity to engage with other evaluators who are in context and evaluators who are around the world.

Program overview

Developed by the Centre for Program Evaluation, the online Evaluation program is the only program of its kind in Australasia. This unique program uses the latest research to equip students with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to effectively evaluate workplace programs to produce the best possible outcomes.

This program is designed for professionals across a range of industries and roles including policy and program planners, trainers, teachers, performance auditors, and managers and consultants, across the public and private sectors.

As a graduate of the Evaluation course you will gain the same qualification and graduation certificate as an on-campus student because you will achieve identical learning outcomes from the same academics that teach our on-campus courses. If you complete your master’s you will also be invited to attend a graduation ceremony in Melbourne.
