CSUC launches First Master of Science degree in Monitoring and Evaluation in Ghana


Christian Service University College begins a new postgraduate programme in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E). The elite programme, which has received accreditation from Ghana’s foremost accreditation body the National Accreditation Board and the first of its kind in Ghana, takes off in October 2016.

What the Programme seeks to accomplish

The programme seeks to train professionals who will monitor and evaluate the implementation processes of policies, plans, programmes and projects being undertaken in both the private and public sector of countries in developing countries in general and Ghana in particular.

Specific objectives

The specific objectives are to; produce graduates who will bring integrity to the monitoring and evaluation process; train professionals who have expertise in project design, planning and management; harmonise theory with practice in plan implementation and management; and train professional monitoring and evaluation specialists who will be equipped with in-depth knowledge in monitoring and evaluation to enable them take responsible positions as M&E managers.

Uniqueness of the M&E Programme

The uniqueness of the M&E programme lies in the fact that it is not going to be just a taught programme, but also there will be practical workshop sessions, using data collected from live projects by students through field trips to prepare M&E plans.


The programme is greatly needed because there are a few well-trained and skilled Monitors and Evaluators manning M&E offices of corporate entities, the Ministries, MMDAs, financial institutions, media organisations and NGOs. The programme is the first of its kind in West Africa at the graduate level. The course instructors are highly trained and seasoned lecturers and there are resource persons with rich and practical M&E project experiences.

Job Prospects

The programme prepares students for employment in corporate organisations, NGOs, financial institutions, multi-lateral organisations, government ministries, Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), utility institutions, media organisations, engineering companies, construction companies and international organisations.

Admission Requirements

Applications are invited from senior level management personnel in corporate organisations. Holders of good undergraduate degrees in the Social Sciences, Business and Public Administration, Agriculture, Building Technology, Architecture, Engineering and Planning from recognized universities with at least a second class lower division and a minimum of two years working experience are also qualified to apply.


Programme Duration

The duration of the programme is one year (12 months) and an extended three months for dissertation, making it 15 months altogether.
