“I think trauma is the link between the majority of the work that social workers and public health practitioners do. If you work with people, you work with trauma; that’s just how it is, whether you’re a counselor or a health policy maker." - Lauren Kroening, MPH/MSW '16
This course is a general introduction to the theory and practice
of social research, particularly to the application of the
scientific method to social work practice. This course as designed
has a two-fold focus: (1) to give students a working knowledge of
issues and techniques of measurement in empirical research and (2)
to acquaint them with commonly used research designs and their
underlying logical rationales.
