RSCH 8451 - Advanced Mixed-Methods Reasoning and Analysis


(4 cr.) This research course builds upon knowledge and skills acquired in RSCH 8250 - Quantitative Reasoning and Analysis and RSCH 8350 - Qualitative Reasoning and Analysis. It provides students with more specialized knowledge and skills for designing mixed-methods research at the doctoral level. Students gain an understanding of the types of mixed-methods designs and how to select the most appropriate approach for the research question. The course emphasizes integrating quantitative and qualitative elements into true mixed-methods studies; practice in data analysis; and integration of qualitative and quantitative data within a research write-up. Reliability and validity in mixed-methods approaches will be highlighted. Students will apply and synthesize their knowledge and skills by developing a truly mixed-methods research plan that appropriately incorporates qualitative and quantitative elements. (Prerequisite(s): RSCH 8250 and RSCH 8350.)
