IDIS 9000 - Advanced Research Methods


3 cr.
This course will build on the background and skills students develop in master’s level programs. The course will include a review of the range of research methodologies commonly used in education and the social and behavioral sciences. It will examine the different types of research generally used in those fields, including case studies, causal comparative research, action research, experimentation and survey research. This course should be taken midway through the plan of study so that the student will be able to use the class to develop a methodology specific to a thesis or action research project he or she plans as a capstone to the individual curriculum. The course will assist the student in developing focused research questions, as well as problem identification and significance. Further, the student will develop a comprehensive literature review and methodology for the capstone project.
