Research Ethics Course Offered in Fall to Meet NIH RCR requirement
A course on research ethics that meets the NIH Responsible Conduct of Research requirement for T, K, and F awards will be offered this fall.
Qualitative Research 8595 – Research Ethics in the Professional and Social Sciences meet the NIH requirement and also counts as an elective for the Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies Certificate.
The course explores ethical dilemmas in conducting research in the social, professional, and human sciences and the sources of ethical principles and practices used to address these dilemmas. Philosophical traditions in ethics from around the world and codes of ethical practice from professional associations, government agencies, and other relevant institutions are examined for their applications to choices researchers make and challenges they face. This course is designed to equip researchers studying human behavior and experience to engage in ethical analysis and concrete ethical problem solving when designing, conducting, analyzing, reporting, and applying research design. The prerequisite for QUAL 8595 is any prior course in research methods and design.
