Course Overview

This course introduces the techniques that scientists use to answer empirical questions or more specifically, research methods. Students will learn how to operationalize concepts, derive variables, state hypotheses about the relationships between those variables, and then to develop a plan to test those hypotheses, or what is known as the study design. The emphasis of instruction is on developing consumers of research vs. producers of research.
