Students will develop either a systematic review protocol or a proposal for a research project including: identification of a research question that can meaningfully extend knowledge on a topic, a review of the literature and design of a research method. The course will enhance students’ knowledge of the varied philosophical underpinnings and methodological approaches to conceiving and designing research in health and human services.
