RSCH 8450Z - Advanced Mixed-Methods Reasoning and Analysis


4 cr. This research course builds upon knowledge and skills acquired in RSCH 8200 Quantitative Reasoning and Analysis and 8300 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 8200Z or AMDS 8437 AND RSCH 8300Z or AMDS 8427 AND Residency 3.)
