CTSJ 300 Research Methods and Critical Inquiry

This course is an introduction to the process of conducting social science research. Students will learn to execute a research project from start to finish—including the formulation of a research question, selecting the best method(s) for addressing the question, statistical analysis in a lab setting, and research report writing. Students will also learn to critically analyze the production of knowledge and unmask the power dynamics of “scientific” inquiry, “objectivity,” and “authority.”
