GRD 5015 - Introduction to Social Science Research Methods

3 Credits
This course is designed to introduce students to how tos and wherefores of social science research. Most of the class will be centered on the four most basic approaches to social research: experimentation, survey research, field research, and the use of available data. The class is designed to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each, while suggesting that the approaches are complementary rather than mutually exclusive. This overall approach integrates data collection and interpretation so as to ensure a cohesive research plan.
