GPHD6104: Quantitative Research Methods and Basic Statistics

Credits 3
This course examines how the choice of an appropriate research method (quantitative versus qualitative) is determined by the nature and type of the research question under study. It will explore how qualitative concepts may be operationalized into viable research variables and studied scientifically. It will also examine the limitations of this approach in understanding subjective psychological and psycho spiritual phenomena, as well as how quantitative components may be included as part of mixed designs to enhance or complement certain aspects of qualitative research.
