HSC 450 : Research Methods for the Health Sciences

Over the course of the semester students will be guided through the process of using research to identify and address contemporary issues in the health sciences. Through close readings and group discussion, Health Sciences majors will learn to pose important questions, conduct comprehensive literature reviews, develop testable hypotheses, identify appropriate variables, and draft professional research proposals to be presented in class. Those who excel in this course may be offered the opportunity to further develop their research the following semester. Restricted to junior/senior HSC majors or by permission of the Health Sciences Program Director.
