This course is the first of a two-term sequence of seminars designed to teach new PhD students in Communication Studies the fundamental techniques for conducting valid scholarly research. The courses will introduce students to multiple methodologies. Both the universal characteristics that mark all valid research regardless of the methodology employed and the specific details of each type of methodology will be focused upon. In completing this two-term sequence, it is expected that students will acquire adequate expertise in research methodology both to evaluate critically the validity of published scholarly research and to pursue their own research ideas from initial conceptualization to final conclusions.
