This course intends to further develop the critical thinking and problem solving skills of students through quantitative research. Its goal is to equip students with the necessary skills and experience to write their own research paper. The actual research process will serve as the flow of the subject; from conceptualization of the topic, to critiquing a research paper up until the actual writing of their own research paper. Statistics using the spreadsheet program Microsoft Excelâ„¢ and the software Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) will be taught as well. Towards the end of the course, the students are expected to pair up and produce their own research paper.
