Course Hours





Quantitative or Qualitative Research Methods



(or equivalent)



This course builds upon the foundation of quantitative and qualitative research methods as well as conceptualization of research to guide students in the development of a research proposal. Students will develop the ability and capacity to select and apply appropriate research strategies for addressing issues from a diverse array of educational, social and related situations. Upon completion of the course, candidates should have drafted a research proposal. This course is also intended to help student researchers to structure and write their thesis and research articles better. The focus will be on the process of actually structuring and writing proposal as well as papers, or bigger projects such as a thesis (but less with research methodology or strategies for managing the project), on argumentation, logical reasoning, structure, and the like.
