COURSE OBJECTIVES/DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to provide you with an overview of empirical research
methodologies in the health sciences. By virtue of taking this course and learning the
material you should be able to appreciate the strengths and limitations of different
research designs, and more importantly, you should be able to critically evaluate research
that you encounter in your everyday life, as well as claims that are made in the popular
media. What you learn in this course will also assist you in conducting your own
research studies in the future, and form the basis for some more advanced research design
and methodology classes that you may take later in your academic career.

documented reasons for failing to complete stated course requirements. Final marks are
final and will not be adjusted in order to “boost” students into the next letter grade.
TESTS
Unit tests will be a combination of short answer and multiple choice questions drawn
from textbook and lecture materials. You will be expected to recall factual information
from both sources, and apply knowledge to new situations/problems presented in the test
questions. All unit tests will take place during class time, and you will be required to
present your student ID during the test.
FINAL EXAM
Your final exam will take place during the examination period. The content, like the unit
tests, will include a combination of short answer and multiple choice questions drawn
from textbook and lecture materials. The final exam is cumulative, and will cover all
topics covered during the course. However, specific content will be prioritized (i.e.,
mostly Test 2 material and onwards) in order to make the amount of study material more
manageable.
