Jour 435: Research methods

Understanding media research methods is essential for appreciating how media planning occurs, how advertising and public relations campaigns are planned and evaluated, and how scholars explore media effects and people's use of media. This course examines how research methods are used by media practitioners and researchers, focusing in particular on the scientific process, an introduction to statistics, and research design. We also study how research is presented by scholars and the popular media.
