Students acquire the knowledge and skills to formulate research problems; plan studies; gather, organize, test, and interpret information; prepare research reports; and present findings and recommendations in professional contexts. Specific areas include qualitative and quantitative research, sampling, measurement techniques, data collection, observational methods, general principles of research design of laboratory and field studies, computer simulations and cross-cultural studies.
