MEDT 631 Research Design(2)
Explores the theory of research design and requires that students show their understanding through integration of design theory into their theses proposals. The didactic portion of the course is presented during a weekly one hour class where theory is presented and discussed. The class reviews weekly homework assignments on such topics as hypothesis formulation, design of a research study, and critique of the scientific paper. The assignments serve to meld the theory with its laboratory application. At the end of the semester, students present their thesis proposals.
