Doctoral Seminar in the Process of Inquiry
Credits: 1
Grad Meth: Reg, Aud
Restriction: Must be a first-year student in the Family Science doctoral program or Maternal and Child Health doctoral program; or permission of instructor .
This small, team-taught pro-seminar is designed as an introduction to the integration of family science and public health paradigms. The focus is the full, complex "process of inquiry", with emphasis on the conceptualization phase of the process, as it leads to related design, planning, empirical, and analytic phases. Instead of emphasizing content, the pro-seminar will help students develop a broad "way of thinking" about scientific inquiry, which will guide their coursework, assessments, and independent scholarly work during their doctoral training.
