PSY 630 - Advanced Research Methods in Psychology (3 Credits)

Prerequisite(s): PSY 625 
The course will introduce the major concepts, issues and techniques of social science research, including the epistemological and ontological principles behind the different methods employed in the field of psychology. We will be reviewing quantitative, qualitative and mixed-methods approaches. Students will be engaged in evaluating the pros and cons of the different approaches and in exploring various data-collection methods available in the field. Students will become skilled consumers and critics of empirical social science research across a wide range of methodologies and substantive fields; develop research questions and relevant research designs; and gain experience in the collection and analysis of data.
