M.A. Liberal Studies Research Methods
The research methods you will need to successfully complete your electives and write your final project will depend very much on your topic and on the various disciplines you bring to bear. There are a number of scheduled electives that focus on a variety of research methods in the humanities and the social sciences. Often, they can be taken for variable credits. Whether you include one of these scheduled electives in your degree program or work with your academic advisor to create an individualized research elective, we strongly suggest that you consider an elective in research methods to be taken as a lead-in to your final project. Typically, the Final Project Proposal, which should be completed and approved a semester before registering for your final project, can be one of the outcomes of such an elective.
