This course syllabus is for a Master level social work course on research methods. This course is the first in a two-part series where the end product is a research proposal in this course that is then carried out in the subsequent course. This course could also serve as a stand-alone course ending with the research proposal. The course uses an OER textbook resulting in a zero-textbook-cost (ZTC) for the students.
