Communication Studies Courses
COMM 3000 Applied Research Methods (3 credits)
This class frames research as a way of knowing and provides balanced treatment to both quantitative and qualitative traditions in communication inquiry. Conceptually, this class will provide in-depth discussion about the role of reasoning in the research enterprise and how this process ¿plays out¿ in planning and writing a research proposal and report. Students will understand the differences (and utility) of three methodological frameworks (quantitative, interpretive/systems, and critical). Prerequisite: COMM 2000 or instructor consent.
