About:

Students will critically evaluate the two research topics that were developed into draft concept papers during RES/750. Students will determine which topics have the best viability for further study and will continue to refine them. Advanced qualitative and quantitative issues and approaches such as phenomenology, grounded theory, and critical theory will be examined. Competency A: Demonstrate an advanced understanding of quantitative and qualitative research designs. Competency B: Evaluate proposed research topics for effectiveness and feasibility. Competency C: Justify the research method and design proposed for realizing the study's purpose. Competency D: Explain how the proposed study will contribute substantively to the I-O psychology literature. Competency E: Integrate and synthesize literature related to the proposed research topic. Competency F: Demonstrate the best practices of scholarly writing and the correct application of APA style.

This graduate-level course is 8 weeks To enroll, speak with an Enrollment Representative.
