This subject provides students with an overview of research methods commonly used in the Social Sciences and Humanities fields. Students are introduced to the research process, and learn about a range of quantitative and qualitative methods. Students engage in a research project, from initial design through final analysis, and develop relevant skills through ‘hands-on’ experience. Students who successfully complete this subject will enhance their abilities as both primary researchers and critical consumers of research.
