RSCH 650  Research Methods and Analysis  3 Credits (3,0)

This course is designed to equip students with the theoretical techniques and skills to identify and evaluate qualitative and quantitative research problems. The course introduces both qualitative and quantitative data analysis. Sampling and data gathering in systematic manners are incorporated into research methodologies. The use of numerical analysis on qualitative data is covered to result in significance solutions and recommendations.

RSCH 665  Statistical Analysis  3 Credits (3,0)

The review, design, planning, analysis and statistical interpretation of data to support research studies and industrial applications. Students will build on statistical theory and learn advanced techniques that can be applied to problem solving, research analysis and numerical interpretation of data. Students will learn to identify parametric and non parametric statistics, develop correlation methods for linear and non linear data, and statistical significance testing between samples and within samples. Students will undertake projects using computer programs for data that is derived or given. Statistical results will be presented in tabular, graphical and numerical ways in accordance with the American Psychological Association format.

RSCH 670  Research Methods  3 Credits (3,0)

This course is designed to equip students with the theoretical techniques and skills to identify research problems and apply appropriate qualitative and quantitative research methods. The course presents strategies of inquiry for evaluating research problems that require numerical and non-numerical data analysis in order to understand relationships among quantitative variables and themes of qualitative data. The course develops the student's understanding of sampling, data collection, and analysis for incorporation into research methodologies. Format and structure of scholarly reports, meeting the conventions of the student's field of study, are presented to elevate the student's understanding of research frameworks involving problem identification, review of literature, research methodology, and reporting results, conclusions, and recommendations.
