Students acquire 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. Students emphasize integrating quantitative and qualitative elements into true mixed-methods studies, practicing data analysis, and integrating 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 true 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.)
