Topics in Advanced Qualitative Methods
Qualitative methods encompass a wide variety of research traditions, each employed (sometimes together) for distinct reasons. Through this class, students will develop foundational knowledge about this kaleidoscope of methods – their theoretical underpinnings, when and how they are applied, and why. We will consider both technical and ethical issues related to qualitative research. The class will ultimately prepare students to submit a hypothetical dissertation proposal on a topic they are interested in pursuing.
