MHC 561 Human Resource Research/Survey Methods (3 credits)
This course is designed to introduce students to the processes involved in measuring the effectiveness of human resource programs, and to provide a thorough grounding in survey methodology, from survey design through data collection and data analysis. Students will build their skills in survey design and construction, scale selection, survey administration, and data analysis and evaluation. Students will be required to conduct a research study during which they will act as project managers/lead researchers responsible for envisioning, executing, analyzing, interpreting, and reporting the results of the study to an external client. The overarching goal of the course is to prepare human resource professionals to effectively lead a survey project and to interpret the results of research conducted by others.
