RSCH 8461 - Advanced Mixed-Methods Reasoning and Analysis


(5 cr.)
Students in this research course build upon knowledge and skills acquired in RSCH 8260 - Quantitative Reasoning and Analysis and RSCH 8360 - Qualitative Reasoning and Analysis. Through this course, students are provided 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. In this course, students emphasize 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.
