In this course, students will have the opportunity to work in teams to identify a novel research question and develop a research protocol designed to answer that question. This process will include, but is not limited to, conducting a review of the pertinent literature, determining resource needs, and preparing to explain/defend the research protocol to the Salisbury University Human Subjects Committee. Parallel to this process, students will discuss original research articles and have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience to make meaningful contributions to an existing line of research.
