Core II: Research Methods for Writers

Core II surveys non-quantitative research methods writers use. This class examines techniques of print and on-line research, interviewing, and case studies to develop the ability to weigh and assess the reliability and relevance of information. Students will learn to identify and present problems in writing using different perspectives and learn how these research styles guide a writer's interpretation of information. The course prepares students to develop their own descriptive research projects.
