COR3303 Statistics for the Social Sciences

Course Description

This course provides a brief introduction to various forms of statistical methods used in psychology, mental health, education, and the social sciences. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of data and the understanding of recently published materials and research studies. In this course, our approach will be to have students be "wise and informed consumers" of statistics and its applications to human experiences and the social sciences. We will emphasize having students be better consumers of information by showing the role of statistics in many aspects of psychology, technology, and science, as well as in everyday applications. The course will be using real examples and case studies to build an understanding of the core fundamentals and the key ideas/concepts within statistics that can be applied to a variety of subject areas drawing from the students' life experiences, existing texts, and journal articles. We will be emphasizing the "use" of statistics in human experiences and will focus on the computation of statistics along with the methods of statistical data analysis. Additionally, the course will focus on helping students to become better critical thinkers, systematic planners, and decision makers.
