PSYC6010 Seminar in Research Methods II

Course Description

3 Units, 3 Lect.

This course is the continuation of Research Methods I (PSYC5010). The course objective is to understand the concepts and methods of data analysis in social science research. In particular, students will learn how to apply appropriate statistical methods in various research scenarios and how to interpret the results. Even though mathematical proofs and statistical derivations will be reduced to a minimum, having the knowledge of basic mathematics and matrix manipulations will be helpful. Various statistical software programs (such as EQS, HLM) in addition to SPSS will be introduced and the ability to use these programmes for data analysis is important.
