SWF 3006 - Research Basics


(3)

Learn the basics behind the design and development of a research project. From conception to feasibility to proposal. Even if you do not intend to pursue graduate work in the social sciences, understanding social research methodology is vital for almost any career or service position that interacts with statistics, studies, reports, etc. Developing these skills will serve you in becoming a more discriminating consumer of media as well, as media outlets report on studies, polls, and more. At its essence, a methodology course is a sub-division of epistemology (“how do we know what we know”), methodology seeks to answer the related question, “how do we find out?” Students will design and write a research proposal.
