Applied Research Methods (CDAE 250) has been designed to teach you how to be a better consumer and producer of science-based social research. Each and every day, as you interact with the physical world and society, you informally collect and store information. This information can influence your attitudes and behaviors on a wide array of matters. Studying science-based research methods enables (empowers) you to collect, store and understand information in a more systemic manner; therefore, your attitudes and behaviors will be shaped by more accurate and valid information. The ultimate goal of this course is to teach you the language and practice of science-based social research so it can be incorporated into your college studies, professional work, and everyday life.
