IDS 389 Research Methods in Interdisciplinary Studies

3 Credit(s) W-II

Interdisciplinary research is a rewarding but challenging mode of inquiry, one that requires the practitioners to integrate research techniques, methodological approaches and literatures from a variety of disciplines. This course provides students with a structured learning environment to enable them to become grounded in the major research methodologies of interdisciplinary scholarship. Students will critique, evaluate, and interpret published research, develop a research proposal, and complete a literature review. Students will also consider how interdisciplinary thinking is relevant to their personal and professional goals. Three lecture hours per week. Prerequisite: Successful WI course completion, Junior standing, or approval by Department Chairperson.
