RSCH 8451M - 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 8200, RSCH 8201, or AMDS 8437 AND RSCH 8300, RSCH 8301, or AMDS 8427 AND Residency 3.)
