Quantitative Research Methods


The Quantitative Research Methods concentration prepares scholars to:

  • Explain key epidemiologic and biostatistical concepts for specific study designs.
  • Determine what analytic techniques best fit the study design at hand and develop an analytic plan.
  • Identify potential areas for bias and variance within a study and propose methods for mitigating these concerns, both during the design phase and during post hoc analyses.
  • Critically evaluate studies utilizing epidemiologic and biostatistical methods for strengths and weaknesses.
  • Interpret and communicate quantitative study results clearly to a broad variety of audiences.
