Quantitative Research Methods

Objective

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
