PS 6120 - Research Methods (CMHC)

This course provides students with a strong understanding of the importance of research within the counseling and human service profession as well as the ability to critically examine related research literature.  Students develop an appreciation for the nature of evidence based practice as well as the ability to identify appropriate epistemological approaches to address research questions and design research proposals as well as utilize outcome measures.  Data analysis strategies, both quantitative and qualitative are also explored in relation to program evaluation and research findings.  Ethical and cultural considerations in the development and implementation of primary research as well as program evaluation strategies are explored.
