Students completing this course will be able to describe different kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing and how each is acquired; distinguish between quantitative and qualitative research and the uses, advantages, and disadvantages of each; describe Word style sheets and use a thesis template to enforce the required style sheet; identify common parts of a research paper/thesis and what is included in each part; describe and implement the proposal writing process; identify ethical perspectives and implications for research; and identify problem areas in technical writing and critical thinking.
