Research Methods and Statistics I & II make up a two course sequence that surveys both qualitative and quantitative research strategies in psychology. Topics include philosophy of science, critical thinking, ethical and diversity considerations in research, basic descriptive and inferential (primarily univariate) statistics, evaluating psychosocial interventions, and the use of computers for data management and analysis. The goal of the course is to help students develop the interest and skills to undertake systematic inquiry in applied or theoretical domains. Completion of an introductory research course at the undergraduate level is assumed, though not required.
