Research Methods ED - Mrs. A. Parham-Garbutt

This course is designed to enable students to identify, describe and execute the key steps in carrying out a social research proposal.  The core concepts include how to translate concepts and theories about human interaction and institutions into scientifically testable propositions, choose the appropriate research method, design the research, demonstrate how data will be collected and explain how the data would be qualitatively and/or quantitatively interpreted. This course also offers the opportunity for the student to enhance his/her critical thinking about social issues, to evaluate research conducted by others, and to properly communicate this knowledge and information to others.
