Content

Research Design offers students research training. It guides students on how to specify a question or problem that is important and requires research to resolve or address. It also guides students on various ways to review other researchers’ work and conclude on why further research is needed. Students are introduced to the importance of an appropriate method for gathering relevant data, and then interpreting the data according to an appropriate methodology. Students apply this training to design a research proposal within their own area of study.
