Interdisciplinary Inquiry Skills
Instructors: Various

This topic explores interdisciplinary and integration as applied to various approaches of inquiry. The course emphasizes the value and importance of the intersection between multiple methods and interdisciplinary thinking in designing and conducting research. Students will develop knowledge of multiple research methods (qualitative and quantitative), the role of existing literature, how to design and structure investigation, and how different disciplines use different approaches to inquiry.
