Learn how to do applied research! We examine core principles in designing rigorous, high-quality research, and develop practical skills in data collection and analysis. You will be able to critically appraise quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-method research. In the process, you will develop an understanding of their relative strengths and weaknesses, and how they can be used to practically answer applied research questions in psychology.
