Hon 340: Honors Research Methods

Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College

This course is a general introduction to research methods for the Sally McDonnell Barksdale Honors College students. In this course, students will grapple with the question: "What does it mean to conduct research as a responsible and ethical person?" The primary goal for students this semester is to explore the variety of skills and techniques used to conduct ethical scholarly research and to help them practice crafting a group research grant proposal that they will present to peers and faculty. By the end of the semester, they should better understand what is required to undertake ethical scholarly research and have a stronger skill set to tackle such work. Emphasis is placed on the fundamentals of research design, as well as commonly used qualitative and quantitative research methods and techniques.
