Students will gain experience searching relevant literature, developing research questions/hypotheses, and designing a research plan and methods, as well as developing preliminary skills in using the methods.

Note: The primary difference between HSCI 598 (240 hours) and HSCI 592 (120 hours) is the number of hours the student is expected to spend on the project, which corresponds to an expected increase in the scope of the research project.
